About This Tour:
Visit our virtual coffee shop! Adapted from our popular Greenwich Village Coffee Tour and led by our Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers, you’ll discover the surprising history of coffee in New York City while sipping your favorite brew on this virtual talk. We’ll also invite you to share about your favorite coffee while you learn how New York and coffee go hand-in-hand both in cultural and economic development. See (virtually) some of the most famous (and the more lesser-known) coffee shops of Greenwich Village. Hear the story of one of the most successful coffee entrepreneurs of the early 20th century, whose first shop was in Grand Central and who was a woman!
