Edgar Allan Poe in Greenwich Village: A Walking Tour & Birthday Celebration

Boroughs of the Dead presents a special 210th birthday edition of Edgar Allan Poe In Greenwich Village, a two-hour literary and historical walking tour that steps into the Greenwich Village of the 1840s, where Poe lived and worked at the height of his fame.

On this tour, which runs one evening only — on January 19th, to commemorate Poe’s 210th birthday — guests will visit the site of three of his former homes, trace a path into the past to gaslight-era Washington Square Park, 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 literary legacy in New York City.

Edgar Allan Poe In Greenwich Village is led by Poe fan and macabre fiction writer Andrea Janes. Andrea is also the owner and founder of Boroughs of the Dead.
