New York City is the “most reckless, most ambitious, most confused, most comical, the saddest and coldest and most human of cities.” - Maeve Brennan
Enjoy a guided theatrical walking tour of the many New York locations that inspired Maeve Brennan’s beloved writings in The New Yorker’s “Talk of the Town” section. Through imaginative sketches and unforgettable prose, Brennan created a portrait of timeless characters in the quotidian sights and sounds of New York City. This two-hour walking tour starts in Washington Square Park—the first of many places Brennan called home—and ends with a taste of her much-loved martinis. This is the ultimate guide to The Long-Winded Lady’s New York, ripe with memorable readings and brim-filled with undercover information and little-known historical anecdotes.
