See the artistic side of NYC on this Lower East Side walking tour

Come along with us through one of New York City’s oldest neighborhoods and let us bring the art alive. The Lower East Side is well known for its diverse ethnic neighborhoods and astonishing street art. Historically, the Lower East Side is known for hosting immigrants coming off Ellis Island, and in the second half of the 20th century, the area became flooded with artists. The growing counter-culture population in the Lower East Side drew more and more artists. Soon, the area quickly exploded with creative, expressive graffiti art that illustrated the social and cultural movements that would influence American society in the 21st century.

Fabulous experience

This was a fascinating tour that covered both the culture and practices of street art along with a historical overview of the Lower East Side. Kevin, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, well-prepared, warm, and very engaging.

Excellent tour

We had an excellent tour with Kevin who knew so much about graffiti that we hardly could leave him at the end. Just go with him and let you be inspired through real art in weird places. Take after that a nice sandwich pastrami at meeting point Katz. Thanks, Kevin.

Amazing time with a street art expert

Thank you Kevin for sharing your deep knowledge about street arts and this thrilling district. It really enriched our experience of NYC as we are now paying much more attention to these hidden gems around the corner.

Absolutely fantastic

Liz was a great tour guide and almost my introduction to NYC after just landing and going straight to the tour. I photograph street art and streets around the world and this was great for jumping straight in to the streets of NYC. Thanks, Liz!!!
