Walking Tour: Edgar Allan Poe in Greenwich Village
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join us on a two-hour literary and historical walking tour that traces a path into Edgar Allan Poe’s life in Greenwich Village in the 1840s, where the author lived and worked at the height of his fame — before plunging irrevocably into the final, abysmal chapter of his short life. On this tour, you will visit the site his former home, learn of his contemporary rivals and admirers, and see where he wrote some of his most famous stories and poems. Interweaving some of his most famous tales with Greenwich Village’s macabre secret histories, this tour is guaranteed to enthrall fans of Poe’s literary grotesques while honoring his legacy in New York City.
