About
Greenwich Village has long been one of New York’s signature neighborhoods, full of winding streets, gorgeous tree lined blocks, and an amazing array of characters who have called it home over the years. Starting in Washington Square Park and meandering through the West Village, this tour touches on the artistic, political and popular history of the area, including its famous role as the creative playground for many generations of bohemians. We focus on telling great stories and making our tours like being shown around by an (exceptionally well-informed) friend. Educational and entertaining, this tour will show you why The Village is a place that has drawn people to it for generations.

    Washington Square Park
    Stop: 3 hours
    We'll give you a quick overview of what to expect on the tour, then get you up to speed on the history of Washington Square Park and its famous arch. From there, we'll spend the next two and a half hours exploring the neighborhood. Highlights include the sometimes grisly history of Washington Square, the Picasso hiding in plain sight, the clubs that launched the careers of many famous musicians and comedians, two of New York's smallest pieces of property, the unlikely birthplace of a social movement, and the former home of what may have been New York’s most colorful mayor (which is saying something!)

One of the best walking tours I have ever been on. We really enjoyed our walk with Krikor, who is super knowledgeable and will guide you the area with a cool mix of historical facts & funny anecdotes. Totally recommended, I'd definitely pick Trues Tales of NYC again if visiting the city in the future. Thank you!

We had to cancel our tour at the last minute due to bad weather but Krikor was very helpful and managed to rearrange our tour for the next morning.
The tour itself was really enjoyable and Krikor was very knowledgable. There was a good mixture of history, culture and anecdotes which kept us entertained throughout.

I used to live in the city and now live out of state. Was in for a work event with a coworker and I suggested we take this tour. It was really interesting and fun to see and learn about the Village from a fresh perspective. Krikor was knowledgeable, charming,engaged, and had interesting stories to tell. He even sang a bit of a song! I’ve been recommending it to everyone.
