Radical, Notorious Women of Washington Square Walking Tour
Greenwich Village was home to many political, creative, and intellectual movements in New York’s history, and the residences around Washington Square, especially its ambitious female population, account for much of that vitality. Throughout the years, Washington Square’s environs have seen an unparalleled array of women—working class, gentry, radical, literary, academic, theatrical, convict, and immigrant – who take to the streets and their communities to fight for societal change.
Stroll the historic streets of the Village while expert guide Joyce Gold explores literary, art, and theatre iconoclasts; the salon of Mable Dodge, a center of WW I-era activism; the tragedy of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire and its role in the labor movement; and the suffrage movement in the Village.
