Oscar Wilde in New York

Walk II: Two tragedies in life 

Union Square to Greenwich Village 

Oscar Wilde said there are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants; the other is getting it. Find out what he meant as we continue to trace his stay in New York. Also see how he was influenced by the aesthetic movement of his time, and how, in turn, he influenced the homosexual movement of today. 

Meet at the statue of Abraham Lincoln in Union Square opposite 16th Street.
