Manhattan cannot be experienced by tour bus: you miss the sights, the delicious and repulsive smells, the familiar and bizarre sounds...nor can interact with what makes the city so great: its people and energy. Wear your sneakers, pack a light bag, and find a walking tour that interests you. If you don't want to join a group, we have several tours that you can print out to read as you go, and a new service that offers a cell phone guide of downtown.
Chelsea is one of New York Citys recently gentrified neighborhoods that is a pleasure to amble through. It is home to art galleries, great shops, and an uncountable number of restaurants. The side streets are dotted with charming townhouses and former warehouses and department stores with great windows that now house the city's photographers, design studios, and architectural firms.
