GREENWICH VILLAGE: BEAUTIFUL HOMES OF CELEBRITIES, WRITERS (AND A FEW GHOSTS)
A small town before New York City caught up with it, The Village offers a respite from the hustle of modern urban life. Starting with the arch at Washington Square, we will see multitudes of fine townhouses, the youngest of which is over a hundred years old.
Walk crooked Gay Street, passing houses long rumored to be haunted! We will stop by The Stonewall Inn, birthplace of the modern Gay rights movement.
You’ll be able to look at the homes of Village celebrities, as well as hangouts of 19th and 20th century notables such as poet Edna St. Vincent Millay, movie star Cary Grant and even Samuel Colt, inventor of the six-gun.
See plaques honoring Norman Lear, Wendy Wasserstein and others, at the Directors Walk Of Fame. Top it all off with a visit to the original Magnolia Bakery, as seen in TV’s Sex & The City.
