GVHD50 Walking Tour: Jewels of the Historic District with Joyce Gold
The Greenwich Village Historic District is one of New York’s earliest landmarked communities. On quirky angled streets lie 1920s speakeasies, literary hang-outs, European-style coffeehouses, Off-Broadway theaters — the quintessential American avant-garde home base.
In celebration of the Greenwich Village Historic District’s 50th anniversary, Joyce Gold has created a special tour for Village Preservation exploring what the district looked like on the day of its designation. Explore spots which are new, saved, lost, and ever-magnificent, along with the broad variety of architecture that characterizes the district, homes of notable residents, and much more.
Joyce Gold is a recognized expert and educator in New York history and for over 40 years has been guiding New Yorkers and visitors alike to rave reviews.
