Historic Libraries of the West Village: A Walking Tour with NYPL’s John Bacon
John Bacon, Director of Planned Giving at New York Public Library, and former Village Preservation Trustee, will lead us on a walking tour to explore historic libraries in Greenwich Village. John has already led us on walking tours of sites in the East Village, but now the focus will be on the west side. We’ll wander from St. Luke’s Place to Jefferson Market to Jackson Square in this two-hour journey.
Of course John adds a lot of detail to his tours about all the places along the way from one library to the next. So you will be sure to learn a lot more than you already know about our beloved Greenwich Village. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
Significant walking and standing are required, and space is extremely limited.
