I've lived in NY for 6 years and I've recently taken 2 Sidewalk of New York Tours - the West Village in April with my teenage nephews and the Lower East Side with my husband and mother-in-law on Mothers Day. It's the PERFECT thing to do with out of town visitors. Both demographics loved the tours, and especially the food.... More

I took the Lower East Side Tasting Tour with Kevin as a guide and had a great experience. The information given was very informative and helpful and the food tastings were great. A really good variety of foods from pickled pineapple, to pizza, to doughnuts, etc. We also got a great map of the area with the locations we visited... More

We are a family with 2 adult daughters. We all absolutely LOVED our food tour in the West Village with Kevin. Good food, historical info, very well planned and totally enjoyable for all of us. We have traveled frequently and this was a five star tour for all four of us! Highly recommended!!!!!

Josh with Sidewalks of New York gave me one of the best experiences I've ever had in NYC! His food truck tour is the perfect way to get the kind of local information you need to feel like a New Yorker, all while you eat some of the best food you'll ever have in the city. He skillfully guided us... More

A wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon in NYC. I highly recommend it. There's something for everyone to learn whether you're a visitor or a local.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
