Most walking tours point and stare at New York-with Streetwise New York, you live it! Streetwise New York explores neighborhoods, recounts history and studies contrast--but does so knowing that New York’s essence isn’t listed in guidebooks or displayed in museums. The true New York is melted into slices of pizza, hidden in subways, and carried in the ever-changing stories of its 8.5 million people.

Dan kept all of us (3 adults and 3 teens) interested as we visited places and heard stories we had never known. A great way to spend the day in the city. Punctual and professional.

We stayed at pod 51 in New York and the streetwise tours made our trip so much better. They are professional but friendly, and totally free which is amazing considering the depth of knowledge you will gain about the city.

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
