Historic Stop, Gay Village Walking Tour

“I am a gay man and have lived in New York since 1978 and thought I knew a great deal about New York’s gay storied past until my partner and I took Phil’s tour. Phil is a warm, friendly guy whose love for New York and deep appreciation for gay trailblazers spills over into his story telling. Find the time, take the journey with Phil. You’ll learn something and be glad for it. Thanks Phil!”
Michael G., Gay Village Walking Tour, April 2015

“My wife and myself took this tour. It was informative, well presented and well paced. We learned a lot and enjoyed it very much. Highly recommended.”

“My group enjoyed beautiful weather as we walked with and listened to our tour guide. He had some great stories to tell us that kept us intrigued and engaged. He also was able to weave stories together in an interesting way because of how many of the famous LGBT residents related to each other. His tour covered a few different eras and covers figures in both business and politics. My entire group agreed that this was most certainly a worthwhile experience.”

“On Sunday past I took a tour of ‘Gay Greenwich Village’ with Phil as part of the Jane’s Walk weekend. Phil is an excellent tour leader; he is knowledgeable, comes armed with photos on an iPad, and conducts a very comprehensive tour. So kudos to him.”
—Denise M., Gay Village Walking Tour, May 2016

“The weather was fairly abysmal as Phil started his Gay Village Walking Tour, but he proved indefatigable in defying the driving rain. His knowledge of LGBT life in G.V. was truly astounding and delighted us with a constant stream of marvelous anecdotes. While almost more of a raconteur than a tour guide, he is an excellent speaker. He also allows ample time for Q &A. While I initially had my doubts about staying with the group in such monsoon-like conditions, I’m glad I did. The sun eventually came out and I felt both enriched and entertained by what I had learned from Phil. Bravo!”
—Richard D., Gay Village Walking Tour, June 2017
