Everything you always wanted to know, but were afraid to ask.


Are there really alligators in the sewers? Did the Freemasons leave hidden ciphers that are still visible today? Should I really eat a hot dog from a cart? The answers are: maybe, yes, and it depends. This tour focuses on sights and experiences that are hidden, obscure, and mostly unknown to even native New Yorkers and most professional tour guides.

Itinerary

We'll start at Trinity Church in Lower Manhattan and work our way up through the historic district, into Chinatown, and then take a short subway ride to Greenwich Village. Along the way we'll see abandoned subway stations, hidden alleys, the former mansion of Edgar Allen Poe, and a very popular park, that unbeknownst to most, was once a very popular graveyard. Yeah, its going to be that kind of an afternoon.
