Designed to give you a peek at the fascinating and ever changing area of the East Village, we will visit St. Marks Place, Tompkins Square Park, and some community gardens, while concentrating on learning which venues you can go to in order to experience the vibrant night life in this area. You will learn where you can go to listen to the latest in rock, folk, bluegrass music and jazz. You will also learn where you can see the many comedy shows and even the “open mike’s” where anyone can get up to perform.

This Tour of the East Village is designed to give the participant an overview of the rich nightlife in this area. The East Village area is rather large and there is much to see-on both sides of Houston Street. There is not enough time to really visit any specific venue but you will certainly learn where to go - no matter what your interests are.

Although this Tour is primarily given in the evening it can certainly be taken during the day. Plan on a lot of walking but it will be worth it. The East Village Tour can last anywhere from 2-3hours depending on the needs and desires of the participants.
