- This tour meets in front of the Washington Square Arch
Imagine you are at a party with the journalist Walter Lippmann, the dancer Isadora Duncan and the playwright Eugene O’Neil. Two things are probably true: you are at Mabel Dodge’s Wednesday Night Salon, and Marcel Duchamp is swinging from the chandelier. Dodge began her salon in 1912, when the Village entered its “Lyric Period,” and was dubbed “America’s Latin Quarter.” On this tour, we’ll enter the Village on the eve of the First World War, find out how the neighborhood transformed from a prestigious enclave to an artists’ paradise, and discover some of the area’s original Bohemian haunts.
