Owner description: 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.

Patrick was our guide on a 3 hour adventure of some of the most incredible street art in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn. He was informative, insightful and easily adjusted to our interests as we moved along the streets. Considering that Patrick had two 50 year olds and two 20-somethings....our interests and energy varied BUT we all had an amazing time. Hands down, this tour was a highlight of our trip. Dan was exceptionally responsive in helping to customize the tour, Patrick was a personable and prepared guide, the price was a deal considering it was custom and private, and it was fun! I would highly recommend this group! Enjoy.....

We (mom and three teens) just did a six hour tour with Dan. We only had the day in town, and he gave us a great overview of the city with loads of history and fun facts. Besides being full of information Dan wanted to make sure we were all happy - and we are!

We did the Street art/China Town tour with Patrick - it was great learning about this area and there's no way we would have found our way through China Town ourselves. The tour covered lower East side and the tenements and ended in a food market with free wifi which was handy - had a lovely home made soup to warm up (Deffo think this was the best way round Patrick!)

The trip on the train to City Hall (now unused train station) was very cool. We got some great photos on the trip and learnt a lot of facts along the way - really enjoyed it all.

Really enjoyed the tour i did of Brooklyn. Wouldn't have known where to start if i had tried to explore it myself. The guide (Dan) was great and extremely helpful to us tourists who don't know NYC that well. So pleased i did it as i probably wouldn't have gone to DUMBO and Brooklyn heights otherwise. That's the beauty of the tours, they take you to the parts of New York you may not normally visit but should. Was sad to have missed out on the other tours but will be sure to do them next time I'm in New York.

While getting ready to head to NY for the first time I was hoping to find some local people to show me THEIR city, they way THEY see it, and I found EXACTLY that!!! Cool that the POD hotel offered this free, I would definitely pay the fee as it's WELL worth every penny. Learned a lot about local history, some cool facts about artists, pizza wars, you name it. If you are going to New York definitely take some time to spend with these guys, you won't regret it!!!
