Come along with us through one of New York City's oldest neighborhoods and let us bring the art live. The Lower East Side is well known for it's 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 o the 20th century, the area became flooded with artists.

  • Wonderful tour of Bushwick and Williamsburg. Katie, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and upbeat throughout this 2.5 hour excursion. The tour started on time, and the pacing was excellent--quite impressive given that you'll take two subway trains to connect to both neighborhoods in Brooklyn. We had a smaller group of six, so my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the ability to ask questions and freely take pictures. One can tell Katie really enjoys the history of street art, and this tour is recommended to anyone wanting a deeper knowledge of the culture.

  • I've always loved street art and this was a great way to expand my knowledge about it, visit Brooklyn for the first time and check out some cool art. It was the highlight of my extended weekend in NYC. Matt did superb job explaining the history of street art from tagging to corporate street art. I would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends.

  • Matt our guide did a really great job. He was definitely knowledgeable of the subject matter and we got to see a good variety of art work. It wasn't too long or too short. I would highly recommend this tour! We got to take lots of great photos!

  • Tour provided a great insight into NY history and was a fantastic experience. Tour guide was interesting, insightful and funny. I really enjoyed this tour.

  • This was a wonderful tour with an expert guide. It was informative, interesting, and worth the money.
    Our guide her name just escaped my mind was terrific. She was well versed in street art and had so much to share. Her kind remarks and courteous manner made this tour a highlight of our trip to New York. Thanks, so much!!
