Perspectives on Aging
Join Perspectives on Aging on a tour exploring more than 200 years of social justice history in Greenwich Village, home to important social and political thinkers and significant social movements for centuries. This downtown expedition, led by Big Onion Walking Tours, will emphasize the neighborhood's history of immigration, LGBTQ rights, women’s rights, urban development, prison reform and slavery. Stops may include the Jefferson Market Courthouse, the Stonewall Inn, Gay Street, Electric Lady Studios, and sites associated with the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire, Aaron Burr, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Eleanor Roosevelt, John Sloan, Jane Jacobs, and Thomas Paine. At the end of the tour, we'll pick up a couple of pies from Joe's Pizza on Carmine Street, a beloved neighborhood slice shop. Meet us outside ARB (722 West 168th St.) at 9:30 a.m. to travel downtown with us!
