What you’ll do

You’ll join one of our NY hosts to discover all that there is to be discovered in Lower Manhattan. Alright maybe not all, there’s too much to see, eat, drink and do, but you will enjoy a taste (literally, you’ll be doing some eating) of Chinatown, SoHo and Little Italy. Where to begin? It’s up to you, actually - just let us know what your vibe and if there are any spots you’ve been dreaming of seeing. We would recommend perusing the delis in Little Italy though, which have been in the same families for generations and trying a cannoli or two, then paying homage to NY’s very first pizzeria (by eating a slice, obviously). Get lost (no, not literally) in the maze of streets in vibrant Chinatown and haggle for a bargain with a street vendor, or stop for some dim sum, then amble through trendy SoHo, discovering its hidden gems that most people miss in their mad dashes around the city! Lower Manhattan is a surprising kaleidoscope of history, cultures, communities and flavours which go far beyond just the tourist sights you might have in mind, so get ready to discover another side of this famous area and see the real Manhattan.
