self guided tour

Radicals + Revolutionaries

Walk alongside the activists of Greenwich Village by visiting historic locations of change.

Since the the early years of New York, the Village has been a place where the outspoken activist can feel at home. Residents of the neighborhood have included anarchists, human rights leaders, and social thinkers. Not only have activists been living in the area, but since before the turn of the century it’s seen riots and the birth of new social movements like gay pride. 

Start your tour on the west side at the former home of the most impactful urban activist in NYC and travel through the heart of the Village, with stops along the way including at the residence of an outspoken First Lady and where pride was born.
