Return Details

Chinatown, New York, NY, USA
Meet the tour guide and group in SoHo to begin this walking tour of three of New York City’s most interesting neighborhoods—SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown.

Walking toward Greene Street, see the site of the Manhattan Well Murder, the first recorded homicide case in New York City and the first murder trial in American history to be fully documented by a court stenographer. This well is currently in the basement of the Manhattan Bistro restaurant. Needless to say, there are a lot of requests to see the basement here.

Much of SoHo includes the Cast Iron Historic District, which consists of 26 blocks and approximately 500 buildings, many incorporating cast-iron architectural elements. Look out for celebrities in this area as SoHo is a favorite spot for movie stars and models.

In Little Italy, listen to stories about mobsters like John Gotti, plus the troubles Italian immigrants faced when they first arrived here. The name Little Italy doesn’t really apply today. It was once known for its large population of Italians, but the neighborhood only has a few Italian stores and restaurants remaining now.

Just a few blocks away is Chinatown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Manhattan and home to one of the largest concentrations of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. Chinatown provides a fascinating cultural experience.

Finally, visit the site of Five Points, a spot that gained international notoriety as a disease-ridden, crime-infested slum in the 1800s, before you end the tour in Columbus Park.

Get a chance to sample some of the local foods in these historic neighborhoods.

Cold Snowy Tour

We took tour on snowy/rainy day, myself, my spouse and our adult children- 12/2/19. Max was our tour guide. Very organized, knowledgeable, and entertaining. It was very cold and messy weather and he did a great job trying to keep us under awnings, etc so that we didn't get too cold and wet. We really enjoyed the tour and would go again, but maybe on a warmer day!

Traveling with a friend and exploring highlights of NY. Wanted a bit of history on the SoHo/Little Italy/Chinatown part of the city. Got what we were interested in learning and then some! Guide was informative, paced the tour well, was incredibly clear and well-spoken. Hopefully you get Marcella as your guide!

Soho was really interesting, and the guide was informative. Less so in little Italy and especially in Chinatown. It felt like we got behind on were trying to catch up.
