Full description
A Big Apple experience doesn’t get more authentic than a visit to SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown, where you’ll experience very different worlds in a relatively small area. Spot movie stars, celebrities, and fashionistas in historic SoHo district with its charming cast-iron buildings – its greatest treasure. On this 2-hour guided walk you’ll hear stories of immigrant struggles and gang violence in Little Italy and Chinatown as you sample ethnic food.

Haughwout Building (home to the first safety elevator) • 421 Broome Street (where Heath Ledger died, in Mary Kate Olsen's apartment) • Old Police Station (1909 Beaux-Arts building, which is now a residence) • Ravenite Club (the story of John Gotti) • Old Saint Patrick's • Mulberry Street (heart of Little Italy) • Alleva Dairy (where cheese has been made for a hundred years) • Italian American Museum (site of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire) • Umbertos (site of the mob hit on Joe Gallo) • National Shrine Church of San Gennaro (story of the liquefaction of the saint's blood) • Opium den • Bloody Angle (Doyers Street) • Columbus Park (of Gangs of New York fame)

Superb 2 hours, so interesting ! Had so many points of interest, landmarks, historical sites pointed out and explained to us from hundreds of years ago to present day. We also had the chance to stop briefly and grab a foodie snack / souvenier in Little Italy, I knew nothing about any of these 3 areas until the tour and found them so fascinating, the very next day revisited 2 / 3 of them! Its a must do tour ! Our tour guide Remy was superb !

Despite the weather, Marella made this experience informative and enjoyable. She was knowledgeable, she knew where to go to get the best bites and how much it would cost, she was simply the best! The navigation through the different areas was also well though out. Would definitely do this tour again just for Marella.

Our guide (Max) was well informed and entertaining . He peppered the conversation with trivia. The rhythm was good and a short break in little Italy allowed us to sample wonderful sweets. I learned a lot on Soho despite knowing New York quite well. The neighborhoods were perfect for a two hour walk. I would highly recommend this tour.
