Full description
This 3-hour walking tour starts off at City Hall, where many immigrants become American citizens. Make your way around the neighborhood, visiting 100-year-old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. Stroll the streets of little Italy, as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. See synagogues and Jewish clothing stores.

Along the way you’ll sink your teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Knishes, tacos, dumplings, and more are all in store. Taste the culinary legacy left by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to realize the American Dream.

This trip is offered on a join-in basis, with a maximum group size of 12. If you are happy with the services provided by your local guide, a tip (though not compulsory) is appropriate and much appreciated!
