West Village Historic Walking Tour

In anticipation of the event, the DEI committee would like to share some resources with you to use with your children to learn more about our Barrow neighborhood while you’re on-the-go and at home!

Interactive Map of the West Village

You can use this neighborhood map to plan interactive adventures to historical landmarks in our school neighborhood. Together, you can immerse yourselves in the cultural traditions and diverse history that make the West Village as prolific as it is!

West Village History Booklist

Can’t make the Historic Walking Tour, but are still interested in learning more alongside your children? No problem! We’ve created a booklist to help deepen your neighborhood connection! The booklist not only includes children’s books that are tied to the historical landmarks on our map, but it also includes tips and tricks to help you draw connections to those locations.
