A truly wonderful walking tour of Greenwich Village with a knowledgeable resident and great storyteller who enriches it all through the lens of his father, the Village Voice’s photographer for 30+ years. Highly recommend.

Informative and entertaining. Tim McDarrah brings his father's iconic photographs to life by telling his tour group the story behind the photos and showing them the exact spots where they were taken. Highly recommended!
