Every City Has a Story.
In New York City, each neighborhood has a different story. But you can’t get that story by looking at random stuff. Join us on a guided audio walking tour while we tell you the story of an individual neighborhood and bring the city alive for you like you've never seen it before.
Sidewalk Sherpas is a project created by a couple of locals with a passion for their city, and a genuine interest in sharing just how cool it is with other people.
We’re not historians. We’re not tour guides. We’re just a couple of people who loved our city and wanted to create the non-boring tour we wanted, but could never find.
Sidewalk Sherpas is free to download and each neighborhood is available for individual purchase. With this app, you’ll explore New York City neighborhoods with us as we tell you the background of the neighborhood and then point out all the things we know you’re gonna want to see.
Alongside our audio narration, you’ll have a GPS-linked map to help guide you around,
and tons of historical photos to look at for each stop. See what the building you're looking at looked like 100 years ago, or what life was like on the street you're standing on. Did someone get arrested or murdered here? Chances are we've got the mugshot or crime scene photo for you.
Your tour is completely customizable too. Listening to the tour and decide you don't like our voice? Read it instead. Don't like a stop? Skip it and do the next one. Hungry or just want to take a break? Stop and grab lunch. Our map will guide you back to pick up where you left off. You're in charge.
So grab your headphones and head out for an awesome day in NYC. Don't worry, we'll tell you how to get to the first stop.
This is the walking tour, reinvented. This is the walking tour made awesome!
