Manhattan Off-the-Beaten-Path Walking Tour
"Did you know there are two Dutch colonial houses in Lower Manhattan? Take some pictures of those and then hop on the subway to West Village. Walk through the picturesque narrow streets where back in the day you could find several speakeasy bars. After a nice walk through West Village head north and take a little break at Greenacre Park a charming oasis in the heart of the city. This little hole in the wall makes you feel like you're not in NYC anymore. Take the tram and continue walking up to 60th Street. Arrive on Roosevelt Island where you'll be amazed at the beautiful city skyline."""
From $98.00
