What you'll do

We will walk around the streets of Upper Manhattan as I tell you stories about the architecture, street art and the history of New York. We will look at the past through the architecture and the contemporary reflection on the walls of the city. You will see the neighborhood in its raw beauty. The artists have used it as their canvas . Let's talk about the local histories that are not written in books. You will hear the poetry and the music of the local artists. We will zigzag and go up and down to find old and new treasures. Come with a desire to explore and see arts on the walls outside and inside. This is a very visual walk and camera/phone with a camera is a must :)

Anna

I love art, architecture and this city! My father took me on walk adventures when I was a little girl and since then I walk around in the cities of the world and discover story after story. My education is in art, architecture and education. I love stories too. Now I design my own adventures that I want to share with you. Come with me on a walk and see New York from this new perspective.

Where you'll be

This walk goes through the streets of Upper Manhattan. Rich in history of immigration and changes over decades, Italian Harlem, Spanish Harlem, Washington Heights. Gentrification made this neighborhood a treasure trove of hidden arts and stories. We will see lots of architectural wonders from the last century, urban graffiti and murals on the buildings and maybe visit galleries.
