THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.

Enjoy a Private Tour of Donald Judd’s Spring Street Studio PLUS a Walking/Tasting Food Tour of Greenwich Village!

Our day in New York begins with a private guided tour of 101 Spring Street, the home and studio of one of the masters of minimalism, Donald Judd. Our group will get small tours of the 5-story cast-iron building in the heart of SoHo. Serving as Judd’s New York residence and studio, it is considered to be the birthplace of “permanent installation,” now a hallmark of contemporary art, as well as an inspiration for much of Judd’s groundbreaking output. Works on view remain as they were installed by Judd prior to his death. The building has just reopened to the public for tours to rave reviews.

In the afternoon we will meet up with our charismatic Foods of New York guides for a 3-hour tasting tour through the heart of Greenwich Village. Known for its counter culture, this part of the city was once enjoyed by bohemians, beatniks, artists, and folk singers. The Village has been a melting pot since the mid 1800s and is still filled with delicious foods from around the world! We will visit favorite neighborhood cafes and specialty food shops tasting foods from Italy, India, Cuba, Jamaica, and France. Our tour will include seven tastings. Five on the go and two seated in restaurants. You wont’ want to miss this culinary adventure.

Includes transportation, guided tours, food*, and all gratuities.
(*drinks ordered at the seated tastings are not included)
Note: this tour involves stairs and a fair amount of city walking.
Due to the special nature of these tours we only have spots for 48 participants.
