We'll meet at the Washington Square Arch. We'll circle the Square, stopping at significant locations of the stories of sex and love, from Catherine Sloper's tragic life to Bob Dylan's early liason, sites of light -hearted movie romances, artists' tempestuous marriages, meet-up Bohemian cafes and clubs , and the haunts of free-thinking poets and writers.
As a young student, I fell in love with Washington Square, lived here for 25 years and have become fascinated with the many facets of its history. Now, as an art director, NYU adjunct professor, practicing artist and licensed tour guide I am delighted to share the stories of the loves and romances of the people who've made it famous.

As we travel around the Square, we'll stop to hear their stories at the spots where lovers spent time, from artists, writers and bohemians to ambassadors, rebels and aristocrats...from Edna St. Vincent Millay to Bob Dylan and Jackson Pollack. We'll end at a romantic coffee house where guests can purchase Italian style sweets.
Come prepared to enjoy the stories of the loves and romances of the fascinating characters of Washington Square
