Oddities, Characters, and History of West Greenwich Village

Janes Walk


Led By Robert Tuck

Come off the grid and meander the alleys, mews, and cobblestone streets of this one-of-a-kind neighborhood. We’ll talk about the history of Washington Square Park and its environs, learn how Buddy Holly, Charles Lindbergh, and Thomas Paine figure in to this area. We’ll visit some small and charming enclaves as we head to the Jefferson Market Courthouse and a cemetery along the way. There is so much to see and learn, I hope you will join me. Bring your camera and sense of adventure.

The entire tour will be about an hour and a half and less than a mile walking. There are no steps and wheelchairs should have no problems navigating the course. Street parking is limited and for subways, the A,B,C,D,E,F and M trains will take you to West Fourth st. There are restrooms at the start.
