About Urban Walks

Who we are

We are an international team of people who live and breathe New York City. We created Urban Walks to share our passion for this city of builders and impresarios, strivers and crooks, straphangers and chauffeured billionaires.

Our authors carefully design each tour to bring you the stories behind well-known landmarks and hidden gems. We hope that our tours will help you see the Big Apple in a new light, learn a thing or two, and come to love the city as we do.
