Soundwalk Tours are audio files that feature narratives from experts in various neighborhoods as well as street recordings and music. These combine to make a unique walking tour experience. And they’re inexpensive – you can purchase the Soundwalk Tours audio files for just $1 each.
There are tours for Chinatown, Ground Zero, Little Italy, Lower East Side, Meat Packing, Times Square, Wall Street, and Bryant Park in Manhattan, plus additional tours for Brooklyn and the Bronx.
