Open for Spring Walks

Open for tours

It is easy to maintain social distancing for the small groups of 1-2 people that I will lead through historic Greenwich Village. I recommend early morning walks through the almost deserted streets. It is a lovely time of year and the flowers are beautiful.

Save the Stones

A letter I wrote was published in our local West View, July 2018:

On Gansevoort street between Hudson and Greenwich streets the original 150-year-old paving stones are being replaced by crudely cut multi colored stones with a band of black stones running down the middle. The Meatpacking District is a historic district and the original cobble stones should have been retained. I have seen in the past when these streets are dug up, instead of lifting these stones up a large cutting wheel just cuts right thru them.

These new multi colored stones look out of place here and have no business being put into a historic area. The original stones have a very high value. Where did they go? Who is making money by installing these cheap garish new stones and whose paying?

Washington Statue

There are two statues of Washington on either side of his arch at Washington Square Park, New York City. The one on the east side, depicting him in peace, was sculpted by Alexander Stirling Calder. His son, Alexander Calder, created the mobile. Stamford White designed the Arch.  #walkingtour #sightseeing #nyctours #nysights #newyorkwalks #marcsvillagewalk #greenwichvillage #nyhistory #history
