Private graffiti tour & workshop
One of the more unique activities to do in New York is a private graffiti tour given by an expert guide on graffiti art with an optional workshop. Guests can experience an exciting street art tour in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where an outdoor art gallery with various artists and their work are featured right on city streets. Tour guides will showcase some of the early graffiti street artists including Blek Le Rat and Jef Aerosol who were pioneers in the use of stencils in the early 1980s. From there, you will be introduced to newer street artists, covering 20 walls from multiple artists. An added bonus of this tour is an optional workshop that gives guests the opportunity to learn technical skills graffiti artists use. Your private workshop includes the lesson, paint, tarps, stencils, and a T-shirt so you can create your own work of art.
Often called “the melting pot,” New York City is full of many cultures and unique experiences all coming together on the same streets. Manhattan is the most well-known borough of New York City where most of the tourist sights are located. There is Broadway, Times Square, and numerous museums like the ever-popular Met. Choose between many different tours that will take you through Manhattan, such as the Eating Your Way Through Manhattan, Broadway Up Close, and Manhattan by Subway. Each is a unique experience that covers different parts of the vibrant city many call home.
Walking tour of the High Line, Chelsea, and the meatpacking district
One tour that is off the beaten path, but surely not to be missed, is the walking tour of the High Line, Chelsea, and the Meatpacking District. One of the greatest things to do in New York is to find fun tours that take you away from the typical tourist traps and into the hidden gems of the city. This tour begins with an adventure through the Chelsea Market, which is a beautiful building full of shops and eateries—a great destination for food lovers! You’ll learn about the history of the building, and you’ll get to taste some amazing food along the way. Then a guide will bring you for a stroll on the High Line; an abandoned railway turned public park. Take in the views of stunning New York architecture and skylines as well as works of art made for the structure. Finish with a look through beautiful art galleries with established artists.
