Americas Hall I (New York Hilton, Third Floor)

Tour leader: A graduate student, historian, guide from Big Onion Walking Tours.

A walking tour exploring one of the most diverse and complex Manhattan neighborhoods. Greenwich Village has evolved from exclusive summer enclave of the 1820s to the home of decades of counter-culture movements. Our walk will combine the history and architecture of the area with a discussion of the social and political activism of the past century. Stops could include the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory, the Stonewall Inn, Jefferson Market Courthouse, and sites associated with Stanford White, Aaron Burr, Jimi Hendrix, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Tom Paine, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Please note: There are no stairs on this tour. We will walk approximately 1.5 miles, at a moderate pace, during the two-hour tour.

Limit: 25 people. $20 members, $25 nonmembers, $15 students
