Why Travelers Choose This Tour

At just two hours, this is a great choice if you're looking for an overview of these famed neighborhoods, rather than an in-depth tour. It's easy to fit into your day.
Meet the tour guide and group on Spring Street 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 the 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.

Very good tour and a good guide. It was just too cold to really enjoy the tour. Did enjoy seeing the different areas and want to go back when the weather is better.

A short taste of the neighbourhood. I wish there was more time and more explanation in soho. Our guide seemed to rush through a bit
