Description

See Times Square in a whole new light as your guides lead you back into the past and share with you the stories of the writers, artists, poets, performers, journalists and even gangsters who shaped the Mystique of New York City, and transformed Times Square into the most famous Square in the World.
Times Square is ripe with literary, artistic and cultural history. From Dorothy Parker to J.D. Salinger, the beats and the Great White Way, the New Yorker Magazine to the Algonquin Round Table - so much of what we know and think of about New York City were shaped by the writers, the players, and the drinkers that roamed the streets in Times Square.
We'll point out the sites, we'll sip a few drinks, we'll wander the streets and we'll perform some snippets of some of their works. We'll also toss in some gangsters and Baseball!

Your tour begins at 1:30pm in Times Square. From there your guides will take you on a fascinating walking tour of several Times Square bars that are rich with literary history. Inside each bar, you’ll relax and have time for a drink as your tour guides weave fantastic tales of the history of the establishment and of some of the greatest authors who have hung out, drank and written there- writers who helped shape both the village and the world. Along the way you’ll stop at unique sites that are literary, historical, or alcoholic in nature. Add some passionate recitations, charmingly dashing guides, and a buttload* of wit – this is a tour not to miss.
*is an actual form of measurement for alcohol. 1 butt load = 126 gallons or 2 hogshead
