New York High Line Park Walking Tour

Tours New York City
$30
This New York walking tour of High Line Park will inform and excite you as you take in the rich history of the neighborhood, which dates back to 1847. You will learn about New York's urban cowboys and High Line Park's history, walk through the historic Meatpacking District and Chelsea Market, and even see where the Oreo Cookie was invented. This walking tour of New York City is truly a unique and educational addition to your itinerary.

High Line Park was once the High Line, an elevated freight railroad track that connected trains directly to factories and warehouses. In 1847 street-level railroads allowed freight trains to utilize Manhattan's West Side as their main thoroughfare. New York's "West Side Cowboys" assisted in managing the traffic, however because so many accidents occurred, the city and state of New York and the New York Central Railroad constructed the High Line as part of the Manhattan West Side Improvement Project. After the High Line was no longer used, it was commissioned into High Line Park.

This two-hour walking tour of High Line Park takes you through the trendy Meatpacking District and into the Collier Publishing building, then along the 1.45 mile (2.33-kilometer) length of the park, which was once this elevated rail track. Your professional, knowledgeable guide will take you from the beginning of the Manhattan's West Side history through to the inception of the High Line, while identifying the unique plant life now inhabiting the former railroad tracks.

This region has been developed with public art, and the native greenery has been incorporated with the long forgotten tracks to create a spectacular, dynamic park. You will see magnificent views of the New York City skyline as well as the Hudson River. You will also have the opportunity to visit the White Star Pier, where the survivors of Titanic disembarked, as well as the old Nabisco factory, where the Oreo Cookie was invented.

    Harlem Gospel Wednesday Afternoon Tour

    Tours New York
    $64
    Spend an afternoon discovering Harlem on this guided, 4-hour tour. Harlem has evolved from its foundation as a Dutch farming community to the modern-day capital of Black America — from the Harlem Renaissance to the dark days of the 70s to today's real estate boom. The tour, narrated in two languages (English and German or Italian and Spanish), will include stops at Sugar Hill, Morningside Heights, the Apollo Theater, Sylvan Terrace, and other relevant points of the fabled neighborhood. Finally, visit a Church and attend a true gospel mass.

    This entertaining and educational tour of the Manhattan neighborhood of Harlem begins at the Sheraton New York

    Harlem was founded in the second half of 1600 as a Dutch farming community. The settlement grew enormously during the first great wave of migration at the turn of the 19th Century. Between 1880 and 1920, large numbers of immigrants, especially Italians and Jews, arrived at Ellis Island and settled in New York. Remember two dates for the development of Harlem: 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln abolished slavery with an executive order, and the financial crisis of 1904.

    African-American real estate entrepreneur Philip Peyton purchased a row of tenements on 133rd Street through his Afro-American Realty Company. Street renting against prejudice to the newly emancipated black population was an enormous success. By 1913, there were over 60,000 African-Americans living in Harlem and more were coming to create the spiritual home of black America.

    The narration will go through the Prohibition years, the Harlem Renaissance, the degradation of the 70s, and the recent recovery in the 90s. This afternoon tour will explore the historic district of Sugar Hill, Convent Avenue, Hamilton Grange, and Sylvan Terrace. Also, see the Apollo Theatre, Hotel Theresa on 125th Street, and President Bill Clinton's office.

    Finally, go to a Baptist church to attend a true Gospel Mass. The tour will end at the meeting point around 8:30pm. The tour itinerary can be subject to change due to unexpected traffic and weather conditions.

    Times Square Literary Pub Crawl

    Tours New York
    $30
    Times Square is arguably the best known and most visited square in the world. It is ripe with literary and cultural history. From Dorothy Parker to J.D. Salinger, the beats and the Great White Way, the New Yorker Magazine to the Algonquin Round Table - so much of what we know and think of about New York City were shaped by the writers, the players, and the drinkers that roamed the streets in Times Square.

    Your tour begins at 1;30pm in Midtown Manhattan. From there your guides will take you on a fascinating walking tour of several Times Square bars that are rich with literary history. Inside each bar, you'll relax and have time for a drink as your tour guides weave fantastic tales of the history of the establishment and of some of the greatest authors who have hung out, drank and written there- writers who helped shape both the village and the world. Along the way you'll stop at unique sites that are literary, historical, or alcoholic in nature. Add some passionate recitations, charmingly dashing guides, and a buttload* of wit – this is a tour not to miss.

    Bohemian Culture Walk of Greenwich Village

    Tours New York
    $30
    Delve into the fascinating world of beatniks, progressives, and activists on this tour that takes you through the bohemian culture of Greenwich Village, particularly in the early-to-mid-20th century. Guides will highlight the styles of architecture, the legends and ghost stories of the village, authors who helped shape literature, the power players of feminism, the underground theatre scene, and the many, many attempts at rebellion. The best way to see and learn about the greatest neighborhood in the city!

    Meet your guide at the arch in Washington Square Park in the heart of the Village. Begin your tour with stories of the 2 times residents attempted to declare the neighborhood a sovereign state, first in 1916 and again the following year. See the place where 6 Villagers broke into the arch, climbed to the top, and unsuccessfully sought independence.

    As you follow your guide through the streets, hear about the artists and innovators who flocked to the area, including Jackson Pollock, Allen Ginsberg, and Eugene O'Neill. Scope out the spots where authors like Dylan Thomas and Jack Kerouac drank—often too much—and the building which, at various times, housed the likes of Mark Twain, Andy Warhol, and Salvador Dali.

    Thanks to the progressive attitudes of many of the Villagers, it's no surprise that the district became the focal point of new political and cultural ideas. Complete your tour by learning about the women's suffrage movement led by Crystal Eastman, scope out the spot of the nation's first racially integrated nightclub, and pause at the site of the Stonewall riots, considered to be the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement.

Vintage clothes encouraged but certainly not required.

    Visit one of the most authentic big bands in the land (playing the original arrangements and instruments played by the big band greats). This band has been featured in countless movies such as The Aviator and television shows such as Boardwalk Empire. Members are multiple Grammy award winners.

    Take a walk down to 46th St., NYC's Restaurant Row, where the Broadway expands to Off-Broadway, now reminiscent of the legendary 52nd St. between 5th and 6th Avenues, known as Swing Street. It was the most important jazz street in the world. This one street featured many of the most popular jazz musicians in history. On 46th Street hear one of the world's best big bands, with top rate vocalists. You'll have a nice spacious dance floor to dance in front of band as they play all of golden big band hits.

Be on the inside with a jam session led by a legendary jazz organist known as the “Ambassador to Harlem”, who has played with Lou Donaldson and George Benson, among others.

    Almost as legendary as the music is the great down-home cooking from Ms. Marie, serving a variety of savory soul foods such as meatloaf, fried chicken, oxtail, and fried fish, along with vegetarian fare featuring the likes of collard greens, cabbage, green beans, rice and beans. You won't want to miss her world famous “drunken” rum cake. Ms. Marie's is a real meal bargain at about $10 for a meat and two sides. Come along with me to one of Harlem's hottest night spots, known for bringing Harlem's second renaissance, featuring live organ jazz and R&B. You'll be sure to be singing along to some of your favorite “old school” tunes.

    Food is available here as well as craft cocktails (but they run on the expensive side). A real Harlem “juke joint” is the last stop to complete the Harlem night. This friendly dive bar holds only about 20 people, and you are one of them! All venues have a one drink minimum not included in the tour. Non-alcoholic beverages are available. Tipping is encouraged as that is how the artists primarily make their living so please bring a few extra dollars to tip the musicians.

    When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour

    Tours New York City
    $39

    When Harry Met Seinfeld Tour will show a different side of filming in Manhattan, through the lens of some beloved characters. Hundreds of locations north of Times Square have been featured on the big and small screens, but are so often overshadowed by more popular neighborhoods.

    Beginning north of Times Square and heading through the beautiful and historic Upper West Side and Upper East Side, fans of all ages will experience a New York City they've seen on screen but may have missed on family vacations and school field trips.

    Your adventure begins north of Times Square at McGee's Pub, the inspiration for MacLaren's on How I Met Your Mother. Weaving down the crowded avenues you'll see the original “Soup Man,” from Seinfeld (still possibly the best soup in NYC), and north up 8th Avenue. Surrounding the circle is Trump Tower, the Time Warner Center, and the Maine Memorial, spotted in Tower Heist, The Other Guys and Enchanted.

    Cruising up Broadway away from the fan fare of Columbus Circle the next landmark you can't miss will be the famed Lincoln Center. The fountain positioned center among Lincoln Plaza has been featured countless times since the Centers completion in the 1960s. Unmistakable in Moonstruck, Sweet Home Alabama, Glee, and most recently Pitch Perfect, the center has featured hundreds of performances and events.

    Jerry Seinfeld and his gang called the Upper West Side home, showcasing many neighborhood hotspots over the years.  From now closed H&H Bagels to Gray's Papaya, where you can still grab a NYC hot dog for cheap, these guys knew how to hang. Their favorite spot to hangout - and our second stop - is “Monks,” a.k.a. Tom's Restaurant featured in almost every episode of Seinfeld.

    Turning east you'll head along 110th Street, the northern edge of Central Park, into the Upper East Side. Featured in hundreds of productions for its beautiful mansions, world-renowned museums, and of course Madison Avenue shopping.

    Museum Mile is home to ten museums, and featured in far too many movies and TV shows to mention at once. You'll recognize the City of the Museum of New York as Constance Billard School in Gossip Girl. Down the road is the Guggenheim Museum where Isaac and Mary meet in Woody Allen's Manhattan. Most famous of all is the The Metropolitan Museum of Art and more importantly, “The Met Steps.” Our third and final stop, thousands of people a day sit on these steps, just like Blair on Gossip Girl and Albert (Kevin James) in Hitch. Inside is the Egyptian Room where Harry and Sally realize their love for one another in When Harry Met Sally.

    Crossing over 59th Street you'll be officially leaving Uptown Manhattan and in front of the most filmed building in the world, the Plaza Hotel. Featured in films like The Way We Were, Almost Famous, American Hustle, and Home Alone 2 the building is a never ending classic. Out front is the Pulitzer fountain, inspiration for the fountain the cast of Friends dance in during the opening credits.

    Heading into midtown traffic you'll pass another Trump Tower, a fitting setting as Wayne Enterprises in The Dark Knight Rises and Jordan Beflort's (Leonardo DiCaprio) penthouse in Wolf of Wall Street. Down the block and one of our last locations is the St. Regis Hotel, famous for where Agent Gracie (Sandra Bullock) learns to turn walking into “gliding.”

    Central Park is best known as the most-visited urban park in the United States and one of the most-filmed locations in the world. But it's the natural attractions and their beauty that make it really special. See the Central Park Mall, the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, Strawberry Fields — with the Imagine Memorial mosaic — and much more.

    Then, venture into the Manhattan nearby neighborhood of the Upper East Side, one of the oldest and now most stately areas in the city. See the apartments, hotels, and shops that line the streets, and learn about the history of the neighborhood.

    Tour of the Remnants of Penn Station

    Tours New York
    $35
    See and touch over a dozen remaining structural pieces from old Penn Station on this guided, 90-minute tour in New York City. This special tour of the Remnants of Penn Station is developed by Justin Rivers, author and playwright of 'The Eternal Space,' a play about the demolition of Penn Station. Combining never-before-published photographs, the tour also looks at the past, present, and future plans for the transportation hub.

    For more than a year, intrepid New Yorkers and visitors have been on a hunt for the architectural remnants of the original Pennsylvania Station, still viewable inside and around the current station. There are few people that contest the tragedy of the demolition of Penn Station, which began on October 28, 1963, after the Pennsylvania Railroad found itself in serious financial trouble. The McKim, Mead, and White masterpiece, only 53 years old, became a martyr for the landmarks preservation cause when the air rights to Penn Station were sold to accommodate Madison Square Garden.

    As history repeats itself, the current battle for Penn Station usually includes the relocation of Madison Square Garden to accommodate a modern transportation that might better accommodate the needs of the 600,000 people that traverse through Penn Station each day – more people daily than the number that pass through the three major New York City airports combined. New plans generally also involve returning natural light to a station that has been illuminated by a fluorescent glow for decades.

    As the latest grandiose plans get revealed for the station's rehabilitation, it is more than likely that any improvement to the subterranean maze will require the station to remain operational during construction, which was the case during the 1960s re-do of Penn Station. This unique requirement has allowed many artifacts and remnants still standing within the current station.

    Other tour highlights include Penn Station's Art, often ignored by commuters and life-long New Yorkers; the Golden Ticket, where tour participants receive a reproduction made from the very first ticket to Pennsylvania Station, issued to an LIRR customer in 1910; Penn's Demolition, to learn why Pennsylvania Station was demolished and exactly how it was done; the Largest Penn Remnant, which is about as close to the original Penn Station as possible — virtually no one knows it exists, but tour participants will know where it is, what it is, and the story behind it; and Moynihan Station, the old station's sister building across the street.

    Watch the process unfold in pictures taken by renown architectural photographer, Norman McGrath.

    • Learn about the counter culture which thrived in the neighborhood during the 90's and where this history is being preserved today
    • Locate and decipher works of art from today's creative community including the mosaic glass water tower and shed by renowned artist Tom Fruin
    • See the Mona Lisa of Williamsburg and hear the story behind it

    Williamsburg, today, is seen as a high-end “Real estate development with water views.” That's exactly how a reputable NY blogger described the post-2006 rezoned neighborhood word for word. A neighborhood most recently known as the home planet of the hipster was before a haven for counterculture artists looking for cheap rents that was before an enclave to every major immigrant migration NYC has ever seen (looking for cheap rents) and was before that a melting pot Mecca of American industry and capitalism that was before… in the very beginning… a high end “real estate development with water views.” Who says you can't go home again?

    Williamsburg more than any other neighborhood in the world is unique because it took the three things most unlike each other, industry, art, and unabashed commercialism and made them live together under one big bridge. This tour will examine the layers of Williamsburg, some noticed, some unnoticed, that come together to form an unlikely synthesis of industry, art, grit, and hip.

    This tour was developed in partnership with the Wythe Hotel which is located in a 1901 factory building on the Williamsburg waterfront

    Fabulous Fashion Tour of the Metropolitan Museum

    Tours New York
    $59
    On this 2 hour walking tour, your PhD art historian guide will lead you through a number of different galleries in the Metropolitan Museum and introduce you to one of the most important themes in world art:  human (often feminine) beauty, or glamour.  You will learn about the crazy—but fabulous—things that people have done to live up to their cultures' standards of beauty.  You will see examples of fashion in history from complicated Imperial Roman hairdos to pre Columbian nose rings to 18th century beauty marks, corsets, codpieces, powdered wigs, and so on.  After 2 fun and informative hours, you will have a whole new view of art, and fashion, and possibly beauty....

    This tour lasts 2 hours.  It begins and ends in the Great Hall of the Metropolitan Museum.  Ticket price includes admission to the museum and a group tour by a PhD art historian guide.

    The tour is about everything glamorous. From the grand hairdos of Imperial Rome to the outrageous wigs of the court at Versailles; from gold ear spools in pre-Columbian America to neck rings in Africa and Southeast Asia; and from three hundred years of torturous corsets to three thousand years of gorgeous cosmetics, the history of fashion is on dazzling display at the Met. We'll look at fashion from head to toe, as well as inside out. (Just what did Victorian women wear underneath those giant hoops?) And we'll look at men, too—with their powdered wigs, white makeup, foppish ruffs and of course those ridiculous codpieces.

    As always on a Shady Ladies tour, we'll go beneath the surface to get to the real story: the political, social, and even medical currents that shaped fashion and how it changed. Why did French courtiers wear foot-high wigs in the 17th century? Were beauty spots really used to cover up syphilis? And how did bicycles affect the way women dressed in the closing years of the 19th century? On this fun and informative tour you'll find out the answers to these and many more fascinating questions about fashion and beauty. Above all, we'll come to see that fashion is one of art's biggest topics—not only for what it tells us about changing standards of beauty, but also for what it reveals about the astonishing lengths to which people will go to attain it.

    So come enjoy the beauty of the Met's stylish sitters—and learn how the obsession with beauty is as old as civilization itself…

You'll be both amazed and delighted as you view the many beautiful holiday displays of New York's most expensive and prominent retailers.  

    While touring along Fifth Avenue, you'll visit inside the beautiful Saint Patrick's Cathedral (dependent upon church access). You'll also visit Rockefeller Center's gigantic Christmas tree and ice rink. If the mood is right, you just might be encouraged to indulge in a little holiday song sing-a-long with your guide, while in the area. Further south along Fifth Avenue you'll view many more beautiful holiday displays until reaching the New York City Pubic Library and Bryant Park. Once arriving at the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park, you'll be given an opportunity for a little bit of shopping at its more than 100+ pop-up shops. Afterwards, you will visit a few more beautifully decorated windows of famous retail stores before winding down the evening with a hot beverage to warm chilled bones and a deliciously decadent dessert of choice, at an restaurant well-known for its desserts.

    Your guide will provide expert commentary for all sites visited along the route. All along the route, you are encouraged to take lots of memorable photographs while reveling in all the amazing sights and sounds of the holidays in super-sized, New York City style!

    Midtown and Lower Manhattan Small-Group Walking Tour

    Tours New York
    $105

    Spend one short day visiting two of New York's most unmissable districts – Lower Manhattan and Midtown. On this 5 hour small group combo tour, you'll discover the stories behind its colonial sites and skyscrapers that even most New Yorkers don't know. Join up to ten other visitors on a trip back in time that will reveal how The Big Apple developed its iconic skyline.

    During this tour, your enthusiastic guide will reveal historical sites including Bowling Green and Castile Clinton in Battery Park. They will introduce you to statesmen including George Washington and Alexander Hamilton at both Federal Hall and Trinity Church before fast-forwarding to the last century, when the Charging Bull became the symbol for Wall Street and the NYSE. Discuss the clash of classic and modern architecture that creates New York's distinct skyline before moving to modern times. You'll learn the tragic tales lived by New Yorkers on 9/11 while visiting the official memorial as well as the firefighters' memorial. The city has moved forward though, and the soaring Freedom Tower is the best example. Recently the Occupy Wall Street movement took over Zuccotti Park, demonstrating how the district is still a vital part of the city.

    Then after a break for lunch, travel north to Midtown where your guide will help navigate the streets and landmarks that are part of the postcard perfect New York that every visitor is seeking. Explore the lesser-known Marble Collegiate Church and then visit famed landmarks like the New York Public Library and the Morgan Library. Stroll through Madison Square Park and learn about the odd design of the Flatiron building. Discuss the innovations that allowed the city to reach new heights during the skyscraper boom of the early 1900s. Learn about the Met Life Tower and the New York Life Building among other famous towers. Of course you'll hear all about the world-famous Empire State Building, one of the last great 20th century giants. Then have your camera ready to catch the commuters within the main terminal of Grand Central Station, where you'll learn about the landmark laws that preserve these beautiful historic buildings for future generations.

    Ruins of a Forgotten City: Historical Manhattan Walking Tour

    Tours New York
    $38

    This 2.5-hour guided walking tour around Madison Square Park seeks out what's left to be found of the Gilded Age city, reading the architecture and decoding the street walls in a neighborhood that was once the city center.  Where the city came from (Soho), and where it moved to (Times Square, Museum Mile, and the shops of Fifth Avenue), is explained in short order. You'll learn answers to questions you didn't know you had about New York City, and leave with the deeply satisfying sense of understanding a city that author James Baldwin called 'spitefully incoherent'.

    Meet your guide in late morning at the the Flatiron Building on 23rd Street then head up Fifth Avenue to the Empire State Building at 34th Street.  Along the way you will learn the history as it is revealed by the street walls; building heights, widths, façade styles, how they were adapted for re-use over time, over, and over (and over…) again.

    Then, head south, crossing back and forth along Broadway on our way to 23rd Street. Now you'll be going from the old seedy red light district of the Tenderloin to the upper class residential precincts. Broadway here was once a cultural, 'other-side-of-the-tracks' kind of divide, and the stark difference between the low brow district of saloons and brothels, and the fine hotels and homes on the other side of Broadway, is very much evident in those Broadway blocks today.  Pass through Tin Pan Alley, the sheet music grind house of the time.

    Then, cross into an entirely different history on the other of 23rd Street at Sixth Avenue, the Ladies' Mile Historic Shopping District. This preserved-in-amber row of the middle class shopping emporia of the Gilded Age is the heart of Chelsea today.  The hard divide between the red light district of the Tenderloin, and the respectable shopping district is still very much evident if you know what to look for. A real “time capsule block”, a middle class church (the old Limelight night club) and three middle class homes of the 1850s, still stand from before the Gilded Age moved in. A preserved historic district with an earlier residential history accidentally preserved within!

    Continue south to 19th Street and then turn east, back to Fifth Avenue. Here, again, the more complicated history of the transitions that passed through this stretch of Fifth Avenue are explained by the buildings themselves. From residential, to retail, to industrial, and back again.

    On Broadway, between Union Square and Madison Square, the tour will end on a stretch of blocks that have about the most wonky history of any section of street in the city. A wonderful Broadway enclave that holds perhaps one of the greatest secrets in New York City.

    A Walking Tour of the Upper West Side: The Development of an Early NYC Suburb

    Tours New York
    $38

    While it's very much part of the city today, a great many of the buildings on the Upper West Side, among them gorgeous brownstones and beaux arts apartment-hotels, were built when the area was a residential suburb. As time went on and the city grew the character of the neighborhood would evolve to accommodate and incorporate the urban sprawl of the uptown growth of the city. This walking tour makes sense of the streets in the area today, using images to show what the streets originally looked in their first transformation from farmland, how the streetscapes changed with buildings being replaced or altered, and how the different avenues of the Upper West Side developed to the beat of their own drum.

    The tour meets at 66th Street and Columbus Avenue in the outdoor seating area near the bust of Richard Tucker at Lincoln Center. We begin with a general overview of the area's development from when Broadway's beginning here as the Bloomingdale Lane made its way through a bucolic area of country estates and small farm-based villages with names like Harsenville.

    Propelled by the development of new transit systems, first horse cars and elevated trains and then subways, side streets were developed with fine residential brownstone homes in the latest architectural styles, especially Queen Anne, Beaux Arts while each of the avenues was projected to have its own path of development. Some were planned to be grand residential boulevards while others were meant for the stables and grocers that provisioned the wealthy with needs like firewood and coal.  Central Park West, Columbus Avenue, Amsterdam Avenue, West End, Riverside Drive, and of course Broadway, sometimes held true to their original plans, while others took different tracks.  To different degrees streets and avenues retained the looks of their original development, many having been radically altered. What's left today is a puzzle that this tour seeks to demystify and unravel.

    In addition to the area's shifting development, and an architectural history unique to the area, as we criss-cross the avenues and side streets you'll learn the many different forms of early modes of upper class living, including French Flats, apartment-hotels, artists' lofts, cooperatives, and mansion apartments.  You'll learn how the customs, norms and values of the day determined various living arrangements and the very particular layouts required for respectable but convenient multiple family housing for the middle and upper classes before the apartment building.

    The tour ends nearby the 1 subway at 79th and Broadway.

    A Walk Through 1840's New York City

    Tours New York
    $38

    This 2.5-hour walking tour meets on the steps of the Public Theater in Astor Place, across from Colonnade Row and what was the highest end residential block in the country in the 1830s, the resides of Astors, Delanos and Roosevelts. We end at the Civic Center, and the old Five Points neighborhood of "Gangs of New York" fame, the most notorious slum in New York City's history.

    And going from the upper class residential precinct of today's Astor Place to the miserable wretchedness of the Five Points was a top request of tourists in the 1830s, 40s and 50s. And that walk would take them straight through the city center of that day, when the finest shops, theaters, and hotels were arranged along this part of Broadway when it was a historical tether between these most estranged locales.

    Start the tour on the steps of what was in 1848 the Astor Library, directly across from the closest thing we have to ruins in Manhattan: Colonnade Row (aka La Grange), the first homes in the country with indoor plumbing. They were built by John Jacob Astor on the site of an earlier pleasure garden he also owned, with spectacular views of the river. The incredibly rich history of this high ground spot along the Bowery is laid out in detail.

    Then head down Broadway. One of the more interesting aspects of this tour is its simplicity--it's a walk with almost no turns.

    And the history along Noho and Soho is made crystal clear. This mile-and-a-half stretch of Broadway has buildings from different eras, of different construction and architecture. Fine shops, theaters and museums would move away, and manufacturing and industry would move in. Cast iron would be supplanted with steel frame. The history is standing in the street, and the tour is also a lesson in "decoding" the street walls and making sense of a city the author James Baldwin called "spitefully incoherent".

    End in the basin-shaped area of the Civic Center and Foley Square: The tour is a pleasant walk virtually all downhill, which is an insightful  testament to the role geography played in the city's pre-grid history.

    The detailed images that accompany this tour bring the history into sharp focus, and especially when it comes to the Five Points and Mulberry Bend brought back to life in all of their  misery and suffering. From sunshine to shadow, recreate the most requested walking tour of 1840's New York City!

    Midtown Manhattan Art and Architecture Walking Tour

    Tours New York
    $28
    This tour is a mash up of two tours that were developed independently, but whose overlap has resulted in this fun, quirky excursion through midtown Manhattan. Calling attention to all of the different forms of art along the way, this tour explores the connections of all of the private and public spaces, including POPS (Privately Owned Public Spaces) that interlace Midtown revealing the extensive network of underground public and private passages, atriums and other indoor and sheltered spaces that connect Hells Kitchen to Tiffany's.

    A complimentary oversized color-coded map accompanies the tour showing your route, and works-of-art along the way.

    This walking tour meets inside the Food Emporium cafe.  It is a fully narrated tour that explains the history of zoning in New York City and the resulting built environment, and one of the least known but greatly appealing feature to the city's business district: the extensive network of pedestrian passageways, be they private, public, or the oxymoronic "privately-owned-public-spaces" (POPS) that interconnect Midtown Manhattan. On this tour one will learn all the options on bad weather days for indoor escape, the locations of all the best bathrooms, even how to get from Times Square to St. Patrick's Cathedral completely underground!

    The tour goes up Fifth Avenue, where a great many POPS sweeps one through the upper class retail shopping district. We then head across to 6 1/2 Avenue, a city creation of a set of POPS that align along the same corridor for a good number blocks just east of Sixth Avenue.

    A Disastrous History of Housing the Poor: A Walk of New York's Lower East Side

    Tours New York
    $38

    From the Five Points and Mulberry Bend, through the Italian and Jewish immigrant waves, and finally what is today's Chinatown, this tour explores the development of a rustic landscape of lakes and farms into what became the mostly densely overcrowded neighborhood on earth barely 100 years ago.  The incremental step-by-step process of putting the need for adequate housing over the drive for profit to house the immigrant poor, from disease-ridden cellar dwelling in tumble down shanties. to pre-, old- and new-law tenements, this tour uses pictures to show what is no longer there, and finds what continues to stand in the street walls today to tell the immensely rich, tragic and redemptive story of New York's Lower East Side.

    We meet at the fountain “Triumph of the Human Spirit” in Foley Square. Here we'll learn the history of the lake that once stood underfoot, and the African Burial Ground that surrounded its shores for a great part of history. The development of the area into the Five Points neighborhood (made famous again in current times with the movie Gangs of New York), and later as an Italian slum known as Mulberry Bend, is explained and explored in detail with numerous images and photos.

    New York City's greater history and even its geography come into full focus as we travel forward in time, and uphill, and look at the once ever-growing historic immigrant neighborhood.  We cross the Bowery, a road with a history unto itself as the ancient Native American high ground path through the island, and then embark into the heart of the Lower East Side: the old Delancey and Rutger farms.  A startling fact about the history of the most overcrowded spot on earth, in a city known for its regimented grid, is that this particular history was built on street patterns determined by the boundaries of farmland. And that fascinating history is also made abundantly clear in the roads today.

    Images by Jacob Riis, author of the seminal book How the Other Half Lives, inform and bring high relief to a compelling narrative—clothe lines going every which way, pushcarts lining the streets—that is the center of the universe of New York City immigration history.  The evolution of housing laws and what they meant for how buildings were constructed and how they affected the calculus of daily life is explored in detail. You'll learn to identify and recognize buildings and the different periods in which they were built. Examples of pre-law tenements (and their disease inculcating backhouses, built before 1879), “dumbbell” or old-law tenements (built between 1879-1901), and the final phase of the new-law tenements (after 1901) are revealed and explained. We explore how fire and disease compelled changes in sanitation (even laws regarding pigs), fire escapes, ventilation for dark inner rooms, and the slow progress from out houses to bathrooms and bathhouses to bath tubs.

    The tour ends at Rivington and Orchard Street, in front of a tenement, in the heart of the old Jewish neighborhood, nearby the Tenement Museum.

    Holdouts: A NYC Architecture Walking Tour

    Tours New York
    $30

    This 2.5 hour walking tour around the Midtown Manhattan shows-and-tells the fascinating stories of holdouts—the intriguing side effect of Manhattan's pressure cooker real estate industry: when a property owner (or lease holder) refused to sell to a developer, forced them to rework their plans, and forever changed the city streetscape.

    Stories, like the elderly lady who never knew any other home; or the poker player-like landlord who overplayed his hand; or the restauranteur whose long term lease (justifiably) demanded budget-busting sums, all add a human dimension to these transactional anomalies. And personal stories that were otherwise lost, are awesomely amplified by the everlasting impression left behind: seemingly ill-planned entrances for skyscrapers, odd shaped buildings, 20-story tall notches in office towers, are just some of the 16 examples of holdouts we'll see.

    This tour is based on the book, Holdouts! By Alpern and Durst.

    The tour meets inside the lower atrium of 875 Third Avenue. This building itself is a remarkable result of holdouts; its story stands out for the questionable tactics used to “encourage” the earlier tenants relocate. The first half of the tour heads south on Third Avenue toward Grand Central Terminal, passing 7 holdouts along the way.

    At 805 Third Avenue we'll learn how Smith & Wollensky, the notable steakhouse, was the result of holdouts. At 201 East 42nd Street we'll encounter a corner lot (always a coveted piece of real estate) where a trifecta of greed—the landowner, leasee, and sub-leasee—each individually held out for such ridiculous sums that the developer walked away and built around them, explaining another odd curiosity in the city's Midtown streetwall. We'll see how a coffee shop with a long term lease resulted in 13-story notch in a midtown office building and one shabby, forlorn looking tenement wedged in among the skyscrapers is the result.

    At 42nd Street we head across town passing through Grand Central Terminal,  the world famous structure (not encumbered by any holdouts). The second half of our tour goes back uptown, but now on the other side of the tracks of Grand Central. 

    At 342 Madison Avenue we'll learn the absurd history of the Canadian Pacific Building, the result of two holdouts along a street: non-adjacent, and neither a corner lot, the effect was a building in the shape of a capital “E”. It would have financially devastating results. We pass more holdouts as we head west to Sixth Avenue. At 1166 Sixth Avenue we come to one of the most surprising manifestations of a holdout in the city's built environment: the inordinately tall trees of a midblock corporate plaza. Their roots are able to grow deep in the undisturbed earth that was the foundation of a now gone brownstone home. At Rockefeller Center we'll see one of the most well-known holdouts, the Magnolia Bakery building, a block from Radio City Music Hall. It was once Hurley's Saloon, theirs and a few other fascinating stories are associated with the holdouts of Rockefeller Center's development.

    We end the tour at 54th Street and Madison Avenue. It is typical insofar as being a restaurant-type hold out, and yet it is awesome in its effect on the skyscraper at the street level, with the mini-monumental Egyptian-style-battered-walls entrance for the restaurant there today, Papillon.

    And each one, each holdout's history has attached to it some human story, an ache, need, or desire that overcame the power of developer's pocketbook. Here is a tour that truly humanizes the streets of the city.

    Expect to be wowed by the High Line. Once a functioning elevated railway line for cargo that went all the way down the west side of Manhattan, the railway fell into disuse and was abandoned in the 1970s. It sat there unused and unloved for decades until a group of locals, with a few celebrities tossed in for good measure, began a movement to turn it into a park. They succeeded. The first phase was completed in 2009. In September 2014, the final phase opened, completing a park that is enjoyed equally by tourists and locals.
    Learn about all the public art in the park, as well as the new buildings by famous architects that can be seen from the High Line. Check out Chelsea, a hip neighborhood known for its art galleries, restaurants and bars. At the end of the High Line, explore the Meatpacking District, a neighborhood that was once, as the name suggests, home to the city's meat industry.

See and learn about these places and more during this intriguing 2-hour guided walking tour of Greenwich Village, one of New York City's most famous, historic and beautiful neighborhoods.

    When the street grid of Manhattan was developed in the early 19th century, Greenwich Village had long been in existence — hence the area's crooked and winding streets. Today the neighborhood is a charmingly confusing tangle of leafy lanes flanked by bars, restaurants and beautiful, historic brownstone residential buildings. It was on these streets that some of the city's most legendary bohemians worked and played.

    Your expert guide will share intriguing historical anecdotes about where the gay rights movement began and where radical thinkers like John Reed and Upton Sinclair started counterculture movements. See some spots that will look very familiar from TV shows such as Friends and Sex and the City. Walk through Washington Square Park, the heart of the neighborhood, where today folk and jazz musicians still try to make a living playing for passersby. See where the Beat Generation of writers wrote and hung out. Learn where 1960s icons Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Janis Joplin played and drank and got wild.

    The tour, covering a small geographic area but more than 200 years of history, concludes at the iconic Washington Square Park, leaving you free to continue to explore the area on your own.

    9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero Walking Tour with Optional One World Observatory Entrance

    Tours New York City
    $35
    Take a 1.5-hour walking tour of Ground Zero and the National September 11 Memorial, and gain insight into the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. A local guide shares firsthand stories of the event and its aftermath while you visit 9/11-related sites such as St Paul's Chapel, the Fireman's Memorial and the reflecting pools, an homage to the thousands of lives lost. You may also upgrade your tour to include a pre-reserved ticket to the One World Observatory.

    Meet your guide outside of St Paul's Chapel in Lower Manhattan to begin your walking tour of 9/11 sites. In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center, New York City's oldest standing church served as a respite for rescue workers and a place of prayer and support for residents who gathered for news of loved ones.
    Take a look at personal memorabilia and photographs that still hang inside the church, and then follow your guide to the National September 11 Memorial. See landmarks such as Brookfield Place (aka the World Financial Center), and gain a deeper understanding of the horrific events as you listen to firsthand stories from your guide.
    Visit the Fireman's Memorial, and explore the site where the World Trade Center once stood. At the 9/11 Memorial's twin reflecting pools, built in the footprints of the former Twin Towers, you'll find the names of nearly 3,000 victims of the attacks inscribed in surrounding panels.
    The guided portion of your tour ends at the memorial. If you've selected the upgrade, make your own way to the One World Observatory, which opened in 2015 at the top of One World Trade Center.
    One World Observatory admission:With a pre-reserved ticket, you won't have to wait in line, so head straight up to the One World Observatory. Board a Sky Pod elevator to ascend 102 floors in less than 60 seconds, and watch a brief video that dramatically reveals New York City in three dimensions. On the 100th floor, look out panoramic windows from a height of 1,250 feet (365 meters), and step into the Sky Portal, a 14-foot-wide (4-meter) disc in the floor that showcases city streets below in live HD. Then experience City Pulse, an interactive ‘concierge' that shares stories of the city, its landmarks and neighborhoods via state-of-the-art technology.
    On the 101st floor you'll find a bar, cafe and fine dining. You may stay at the observatory for as long as you'd like to soak up the 360-degree views of the Big Apple.

    Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Guided Tour

    Tours New York City
    $57
    Visits to the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island are musts in the Big Apple, especially for first-timers. On this 4-hour guided tour, you get priority boarding on the ferry from Manhattan to visit the two important historical sites. Tour Lady Liberty's turf before heading inside the pedestal for another perspective from observation decks. Then hop the ferry to Ellis Island and learn about the millions of people who arrived here between 1892 and 1954 in hope of living the American dream.

    Meet your guide at Castle Clinton, a former fort inside Battery Park in Manhattan, to hop on the ferry to Liberty Island. You'll bypass the lines with priority boarding, allowing you more time to enjoy historical facts about the Statue of Liberty National Monument and learn why it is a symbol of freedom for some many people worldwide.

    Admire the New York City skyline as you disembark on Liberty Island and explore the grounds on a guided tour. Your ticket grants you access to the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, which features several observation levels and a museum with exhibits on the iconic landmark's construction and architecture.

    Afterward, board the ferry to Ellis Island and listen as your guide shares information about this historical gateway to America.

    Upon arrival, tour the grounds and spend time at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. Inside the restored Great Hall, hear stories about the former federal immigration station that processed more than 12 million immigrants from its opening in 1892 until closing in 1954. You'll also learn how US citizens can trace their ancestors here.

    You are on your own for the remainder of the visit, staying as long as you want before you return to Manhattan.

    Please note the 8:30am tour will have the least wait. Later tours will encounter longer wait times.

    All-Access 9/11 Experience: Ground Zero Tour, 9/11 Memorial and Museum, One World Observatory

    Tours New York
    $109
    This full experience of September 11th sites in Manhattan includes a 1.5-hour guided walking tour of Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, plus entry to the 9/11 Museum and One World Observatory. As you're led by a local New Yorker guide with personal connection to the events of 9/11, hear stories of tragedy and heroism and gain a deeper understanding of the attack and aftermath. Select from two departure times when booking.

      In remembrance of September 11, 2001, this walking tour takes you through the former World Trade Center in New York City, where the events of 9/11 took place. You'll be guided by New Yorkers who have connections to that day, listening to their personal stories and touching accounts of the heroism of many others.

      Ground Zero
      Your tour starts at St. Paul's Chapel, the oldest public building in NYC still in continuous use, which miraculously survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks despite being one block away. It became a makeshift rescue center during the aftermath, and its iron fence became a bulletin board where family members posted notices of missing loved ones. Today, with the mementos received from people around the world supporting New York, the church serves as a tribute. As you continue to the Firefighter's 9/11 Memorial Wall, hear the heroic stories of the emergency responders, and see the Engine and Ladder Company 10/10, the fire station at Ground Zero.

      9/11 Memorial
      Enter the 9/11 Memorial, where you can pay your respects to those who lost their lives in the World Trade Center. See the Reflecting Absence Memorial, the man-made waterfall inside the memorial, symbolizing the vast void left by the tragedy. Read the names of the nearly 3,000 victims placed around the waterfall next to their friends, family members, and colleagues, and see the new World Trade Center rise from the ground. At the conclusion of your tour, your guide provides you with a timed entry ticket to minimize your wait time at the museum, which you'll enter first, followed by the observatory.

      9/11 Museum
      Your museum entry time is about 12pm for the 10:30am tour or 3:30pm for the 2pm tour (select your preferred tour time when booking), but this can vary depending on availability. Your guide gives you a preview of the museum and what to expect so you can optimize your time spent inside and not miss seeing things important to you. Your visit is self-guided, so you'll explore at your own pace to see artifacts from the attacks and hear recordings from people who were there that day.

      One World Observatory
      After leaving the museum, head to One World Trade Center, named Freedom Tower, to visit the One World Observatory. This panoramic observation deck is a marvel of engineering and architecture. The program begins in the lobby with 'Voices,' a film dedicated to the men and women of the towers. Then take the Sky Pod elevator, which rises 1,250 feet in less than 60 seconds.

      Immersive LED displays, interactive touch-screen video, and dining options give you plenty to experience, but the true draw is the view as you stand hundreds of feet above the New York City skyline stretching across all of Manhattan.

      Your observatory entry time is after your museum visit: typically 2pm for the 10:30am tour or 5:30pm for the 2pm tour.

      SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown Walking Tour

      Tours New York City
      $35
      Known today for popular restaurants, shops and tourism, the Manhattan neighborhoods of SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown boast some of New York City's richest history. Take a 2-hour walking tour with an expert local guide to discover hidden gems, 19th-century architecture, historical churches, and several locations of the mob and gang violence that plagued these areas of Lower Manhattan for decades. Learn about the hardships that early immigrants faced and how the neighborhoods became what they are today.

      Meet your tour guide and group on Spring Street in SoHo to begin your on-foot exploration of three of Lower Manhattan's most interesting neighborhoods, which have been both gritty and glamorous throughout the years. They are also home to excellent food, and depending on availability on the day of your tour, you may samples some of the local ethnic cuisine.

      Following your guide — a local with boundless knowledge of Manhattan's history, culture and eccentricities — head toward Greene Street, the site of the Manhattan Well Murder, the first recorded homicide case in New York City. Most of SoHo is part of the SoHo – Cast Iron Historic District, a US National Historic Landmark, known for its concentration of cast-iron architectural detailing on its many 19th-century buildings. As you admire these structures and learn about the importance of them from your guide, keep your eyes peeled for celebrities — fashionable SoHo with its many designer boutiques is a favorite ‘hood for movie stars and supermodels.

      Make your way toward Little Italy, the heart of which is Mulberry Street. Hear stories from your guide about mob bosses like John Gotti, gang violence, the struggles Italian immigrants faced when they first arrived in this neighborhood, and how much of the ethnic identity of Little Italy has faded over the years.

      Continue a few blocks south to reach Chinatown, one of the oldest and largest concentrations of Chinese people outside Asia. As you take in the colorful busyness of the streets lined with fish markets, produce stands, gift stores and small restaurants, learn about the not-so-pretty history of the neighborhood from your guide. 

      Arrive at the site of the old Five Points, a former intersection and slum district that was home to crime and disease in the 1800s. The movie Gangs of New York was set in this location, which is now adjacent to Columbus Park, where your 2-hour tour ends.

The Olde New York Tour begins and ends in historic South Street Seaport, once the hub of New York's maritime trading empire. You will touch an artifact that was created at the start of the American Revolution. You'll have a great view of the Statue of Liberty, The Sphere – a sculpture that once graced the World Trade Center – and the New York Stock Exchange. This tour takes about two hours.
