Walking Tour in New York

Although the NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation chooses to call it the "Henry James Walking Tour" it would appear that the "Edith Wharton Walking Tour" would work almost as well. The tour, led by Joyce Gold, is given in collaboration with the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and the Mercantile Library for The Big Read salute to Henry James's "Washington Square". It is on Sunday, April 5, 2009 at 1.30 pm, and costs $7.00. As we know from a previous post the 23rd Street house in which Mrs. Wharton was born is now a Starbucks, so if that is included the walkers will be able to have some caffeine to help them on their way.
