Most walking tours point and stare at New York-with Streetwise New York,...

Most walking tours point and stare at New York-with Streetwise New York, you live it. We explore neighborhoods, recount history and study contrasts-uncovering the true New York, that's melted into pizza slices, hidden in subways, and carried in the ever-changing stories of its 8 million people. From the swankiest stretches of Fifth Avenue to the grimiest of graffitied alleys, we share tales passed down from our grandparents, gleaned from books, and whispered on street corners. See website to book your own customized private tour!

I've attended their 3 tour groups of NYC as I stayed at Pod 39 Hotel and must say that I enjoyed it very much that I have no regrets joining them. I highly recommend Streetwise NY Tours to anyone going to NYC because they bring you to places normally not being covered by big tour groups and you'll learn some... More

This was a free tour as part of my hotel stay. It was very informative and interesting. You get to see both the touristy stuff as well as things that only a New Yorker would know about. The pace was perfect and the distance was great for an average person. The tour guide was attentive to the the group dynamics... More

I stayed at the Pod 39 hotel over a weekend in January 2016, and I absolutely loved the walk that Andrew took us on. It started at 9:30 am and lasted for about three hours. Andrew took us to places that I didn't even realize I wanted to see until we were there. I learned a lot about the city,... More

My partner and I stayed at Pod51 for two weeks in Jan 16. The hotel offered three free streetwise walking tours during the week. We are SO glad we went along. Had a great time and learnt ALOT. Patrick is awesome! His knowledge is outstanding and a fun guy. Go along they are great walks!

Brilliant walking tour of Brooklyn! Saw so many things that I wouldn't have come across wandering around on my own. Really enjoyed it - very informative, Sonya was a great guide!

I went to the Highline, Chelsea and Meatpacking district walking tour provided by Pod Hotel. It was so much fun even in the windy winter weather. The scenery of the High Line was still beautiful in Winter and the Chelsea Markets served the most delicious food. This tour cannot be missed!

We took the Highline / Meat packing district tour with Patrick. It's amazing how much more you can learn about a city with a knowledgeable guide to point out what is right in front of you, but you don't know. Patrick was good fun (he does stand-up) and as well as some of the more interesting historical facts, showed us... More

This was a fantastic overview of the Meat Packing area and Patrick was extremely knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We took the tour at the last minute on a whim and it ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. I highly advise these walking tours!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
