Speed Levitch’s Greenwich Village
Join fellow VP members for a tour experience you’ve surely never had before! Half tour, half performance, Speed’s romp through Greenwich Village will explore not only the sights and history of the neighborhood but also the philosophy, the aura, and the culture. Speed’s tour is a choreography and celebration of a neighborhood that developed more around a set of ideals than specific sites or boundaries. Experiencing the neighborhood’s streets in new and random ways, we’ll conjure the euphoric and progressive atmosphere for which Greenwich Village is so famous.
