New York, NY (October 28, 2013): On November 10, 2013 at 11:00am, Francis Morrone, will lead a rare literary walking tour of Greenwich Village, the neighborhood that has been home to so many literary lions from Edna St. Vincent Millay to Jack Kerouac. As he takes this lucky small group on a pilgrimage to see where American literature literally and figuratively lives on, everyone will quickly learn why Francis was named one of the thirteen best tour guides in the world by Travel + Leisure. Following the tour, The Writers Room–also located in Greenwich Village–will host a brunch for all.
Francis Morrone is an architectural historian and writer. His ten books include “The Architectural Guidebook to New York City,” “An Architectural Guidebook to Brooklyn,” “The New York Public Library: The Architecture and Decoration of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building” and “Guide to New York City Urban Landscapes.” He is the co-author, with Matt Postal, of the Municipal Art Society’s “Ten Architectural Walks in Manhattan.” Morrone wrote every week for six and a half years about art and architecture for the New York Sun. He teaches at New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies (where he is the recipient of the university’s Excellence in Teaching Award) and in March 2011 was named by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the 13 best tour guides in the world.
