An exclusive opportunity for Village Preservation members at the Contributor level and above ($100+.) Join us for a special walking tour with Bill Hennessey, author of the new book Fifth Avenue: From Washington Square to Marcus Garvey Park.

All registered attendees at the walk will receive a copy of this newly released book. The tour will end at the Salmagundi Club, and will be followed by a book talk and signing that is open to the public.

Bill Hennessey’s Fifth Avenue: From Washington Square to Marcus Garvey Park presents an in-depth exploration of architecture along one of the world’s most iconic streets: New York City’s fabled Fifth Avenue. Through six fact-filled walking tours, this accessible illustrated guide takes readers along the entire length of Fifth Avenue, studying its architecture block by block, building by building, offering the chance to discover exceptional and unusual structures across Greenwich Village, Midtown, the Upper East Side, and Harlem.
