Join us on a delicious “multi–ethnic” food tasting and cultural/historical journey through the Heart & Soul of Greenwich Village (The Central Village – the area surrounding Washington Square Park and New York University). This section of Greenwich Village is completely different from the area we visit on our Original Greenwich Village Food Tour. Find out why this area of the Village is so popular for its diverse food scene, rich history, culture, counter culture, distinct architecture, and vibrant Greenwich Village nightlife. We will also visit Washington Square Park (the town square of Greenwich Village) and learn about its radical protesters, infamous hanging tree, the Washington Square Arch, and how the “live and let live” beatniks, writers and poets of the 50s and 60s made Greenwich Village their home. Walk the same streets that Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Amy Schumer did while learning about the music and comedy scene, and why this section of NYC can only be described as The Village! IMPORTANT TOUR INFORMATION The Heart & Soul of Greenwich Village Food Tour (Central Village) does not overlap with The Original Greenwich Village Food Tour (West Village), they each explore a different area.
