The Fever Called Living: Edgar Allan Poe in Greenwich Village

Edgar Allan Poe In Greenwich Village is a 90-minute 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 — before plunging irrevocably into the final, abysmal chapter of his short life. CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS On this tour, which runs one night only (on January 16th, to commemorate Poe’s birthday), you 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. This tour is perfect for the hardcore Poe fan who wants to take it to the next level. See our write-ups in Rue Morgue and Literary Manhattan.
