Greenwich Village walking tours like no other! See where history was recorded by the original Village Voice photographer Fred W. McDarrah - the most curious, knowledgeable and indefatigable chronicler of the New York downtown scene over the second half of the 20th century! Each walker gets a keepsake multi-postcard set of classic McDarrah images and the tours go to the same locations.

Informative and entertaining. Tim McDarrah brings his father's iconic photographs to life by telling his tour group the story behind the photos and showing them the exact spots where they were taken. Highly recommended!

Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
