About This Experience

General Information hide

Lace up your Chuck Taylors and head over to one of New York’s oldest neighborhoods for a three hour Alternative Street Art Tour of New York City. During this Guided Walking Tour of the Lower East Side, you will explore and study expressive graffiti and street art with a social cause.

The Lower East Side was once home to a melting pot of immigrants who crowded the tenements after arriving on Ellis Island. By the turn of the 20th century the area became associated with radical politics and soon was a hub for artists. During the second half of the 20th century, meaningful street art and graffiti exploded out of New York and played a significant role in New York City’s urban culture. During this Big Apple Tour, you will learn how to interpret the meaning behind these artistic expressions that have united people of diverse backgrounds for a half a century. Your knowledgeable, local guide will escort you and the rest of the guests through the diverse ethnic neighborhoods to graffiti murals and street art created by some of NYC’s most innovative and emerging artists.

Watch as the Lower East Side comes alive through street art! Whether you are looking for a new way to explore the City or a fun and unique gift, this Street Art and Graffiti Tour of NYC is the ticket!
