As evidenced by literary icons of the past, like Mark Twain and Edgar Allan Poe, as well as the artists and students today who frequent the neighborhood's coffee shops, theaters and music clubs, Greenwich Village's bohemian vibe has stood the test of time. Discover the area's undeniable charm on a free walking tour sponsored by the Village Alliance. They're run from June through September, but you can always check out the website for self-guided ideas throughout the rest of the year. An emphasis is placed on the social, architectural and historic aspects of the Village, so you'll walk away well acquainted with its one-of-a-kind spirit.
