  • The Ultimate Self-Guided Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan: A Local’s Guide

    A self-guided walking tour of Lower Manhattan including Tribeca, the Hudson River park, the 9/11 Memorial, Battery Park, and the Bloody Angle.

    This self guided walking tour of NYC covers 4.6 miles and takes you through Tribeca, the Financial District, the South Street Seaport, and a smidge of Chinatown! You’ll see Tribeca, the waterfront, the 9/11 Memorial, the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, Wall Street, and the little-known “Bloodiest Street in America,” complete with hidden underground tunnels. And because we’re literally never not eating, we also included brunch, dinner, drinks, and even dessert 😉

Plus, you can get amazing views of the city from above by taking the Gondolas – they’re like an enclosed ski lift. For under $5 each, we were able to see the entire city of Medellin just by riding the rails, hopping on and off as we pleased, and taking the gondolas! Here’s how to see the city of Medellin in a day for under $5.
