Street art is an important part of the NYC landscape and we want you to notice and appreciate it! So strap on your walking shoes and join us for a tour. We’ll head out together to explore the colorful expressions that reflect the many artists who leave their mark on this fine city.

Please contact us at info@saddleshoetours.com for information & reservations.

Lower East Side to Soho:

This walk winds through some of the city’s grittiest and most historic streets, offering tour guests up-close and personal views of art that ranges in scale, style, and intention. A good mix of commissioned and illegal works will be showcased on this tour. You’ll find art in unexpected places and learn the stories behind the art & the structures it resides on.

Meatpacking to Chelsea:

This walk explores art on the streets in the recently transformed Meatpacking neighborhood then heads up to Chelsea to see art living outside the gallery walls. You’ll encounter a range of styles — from painted murals, to mosaic tiles, to sculptures, to art embedded in the sidewalks and streets—you’ll get a great feel for the versatility of today’s street art.

Photography Workshop:

This three-hour event starts with a mini-photo lesson showcasing some basic rules of photography & talking about what it takes to take great street art photos. Then, we hit the streets for a short tour. Next, it's up to you to take some amazing shots of what we just discovered. Finally, we'll regroup and take a look at photos from fellow tour-goers. Don't be intimidated by the photography aspect... just bring your iPhone or if you have one, feel free to bring your fancy SLR!
