An immersive exploration of an NYC icon, PlaceChase CentralPark is definitely not your parents’ tour experience. Go beyond the sights that everyone sees, take a private guided-tour and get out of the group tour crowd. Uncover the city’s secrets and laugh at stories you never imagined possible. We’ll give you the who, what, where and when of both the city’s best-known sights and the unfamiliar places in between. We’ll also explore the untold story of how, why and so what? Experience the real New York at your own pace. You will discover, as you walk through the rich and unexpected history that makes New York an incomparable place, that the truth is often stranger than fiction.
This Chase includes 11 Places to discover all south of the Reservoir and will take you about 3 hours.
PlaceChase Central Park takes you on a journey through the development of this most iconic NYC gem, from its inception as a settlement of free African-Americans, well north of and outside of 1850s New York City, to its present-day status as a must-see destination in the heart of Manhattan. Explore the ways the Park has changed with the City, and marvel at the outlandish plans that never came to pass. Meet a cast of characters that ranges from ‘Commissioner of Everything’ Robert Moses, to the Free Masons who believed in a Christian society that pre-dated the birth of Christ by a millennium or more, to the surprisingly the Arsenal errand boy that created the Zoo.
PlaceChase is a great way to explore the City on your own or with friends and family. Kids will truly enjoy the Chase and its competitive take on sightseeing. PlaceChase will entertain, whether you are on vacation, a day out in the city, a first date or are celebrating an anniversary, as a tourist or as a native New Yorker.
As you explore the Park, we offer 11 opportunities for a deep-dive, clearly identified on our map. Experience them in their entirety, or dip into them as you choose. We suggest a route that incorporates all 11 Place, but you may enjoy as many as you want, in any order you choose, in one session or over time.
Once purchased, the Chase is yours. You can play it as often as you like and share the experience with friends and family whenever you choose.
You may enjoy your Chase in a single session or over time, whichever works best for you.
There are no in-app purchases, no data sharing and no advertising.
PlaceChase CentralPark is just one of a family of NYC-based interactive tour apps. The PlaceChase team will be adding more Chases over time, in New York and other cities. We hope you'll try them all.
Happy Exploring the PlaceChase Team!
