Hi! My name is Ian and I’ll be your guide on this tour of New York’s West Village. This tour takes approximately three hours to complete. You can stop at any time and start again at the same spot later. You can follow the route on your phone or simply listen as I guide you from one sight to the next. I’ll be giving you clear directions and the audio will automatically start playing when you get close to the next sight on the tour. Don’t worry if you need to skip a sight as the tour will pick up at the next location. One more thing before we get started – always be aware of your surroundings and be sure to obey all traffic signals.

I’ll be showing you around one of New York's most picturesque neighborhoods, whose quiet streets are lined in brownstones and leafy trees. We'll also stroll in its neighbor, the Meatpacking district, the new home to the Whitney Museum of American Art. The West Village has a lot of green space, and our tour starts and ends at parks, beginning at the High Line, an elevated park built on disused railroad tracks, and ending at iconic Washington Square Park. On our walk, we'll visit historic sites like Jefferson Market Library, a handsome courthouse-turned-library and the Stonewall Inn, which played a pivotal role in the US's LGBT rights movement. If you're ready, let's begin at our first stop, the High Line.
