Pig Feet Walking Tours

Pig Feet Walking Tours

Comments

I've recently attended a few outstanding webinars by Untapped NY in conjunction with Pig Feet Walking Tours detailing my beloved "Gritty Old Times Square" of the 1970's. Time to turn the clock even further back to when the "Crossroads of the World" was at its zenith. The historic Rivoli Theater regally ruled Broadway between 49th and 50th St. The movie advertised holds special meaning for me, as (to quote the Onion): "To be honest, I'm a bit of a chocoholic myself. Except for one small detail. You see, instead of being addicted to chocolate, I'm addicted to booze! I guess you could call me a Booze-a-holic!".
This man knows his stuff. Highly informative, very polite. Great conversation. Highly recommended.

Led by yours truly.

Artists and arsonists. Punk rockers and panicky bankers. S*x workers and serial killers. New York City in the 1970s and 1980s was a tale of two cities — one of terrible economic and physical hardship, but also one of great artistic and s*xual freedom. This is the story of what the "Big Apple" was like in one of its grittiest modern eras, from one local who experienced it all firsthand.

Join New York Adventure Club and licensed NYC tour guide Robert Brenner on Tuesday, Aug 17 @ 7pm ET as we examine the roots of the 1970s New York City fiscal crisis and its effect on five Manhattan neighborhoods over the span of 20 years.

This terrific Uyghur restaurant in the Garment District could use your support. If you haven't tried Uyghur cuisine before, it's like a cross between Chinese and Turkish food: lots of lamb dishes, lots of noodles. Not every dish is spicy, but when they say something is, they aren't fooling around. Please consider patronizing them.

Adventurous Explorers Wanted

Pig Feet Walking Tours. Small, custom, private walking/subway tours lovingly handcrafted to your exacting specifications. You pick the neighborhood(s) and/or cuisine(s), and your tour guide constructs a bespoke walking tour geared to your precise interests. Chinatown, Little Italy, Lower East Side, East Village, West Village, Soho, Tribeca, Chelsea, NoMad, Murray Hill, Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, Upper West Side, Upper East Side, Morningside Heights, Harlem, Spanish Harlem, Washington Heights, Jackson Heights, Woodside, etc., etc., etc. Adventurous explorers/eaters preferred. $50 per person per hour, all food included. Don’t know where to begin? Check out some sample tours below:

Dirty Old Times Square. In the 1970s, Times Square was a dangerous, exciting, gritty, intense, racially and s*xually diverse neighborhood frequented by both locals and tourists. Love it or hate it, you couldn’t ignore it. Most of old Times Square has been carefully obliterated by soulless office buildings and Walt Disney musicals, but there are still a few vestiges of its seedy past—if you know where to look. So let your guide take you back to the halcyon days when 42nd Street was the Deuce, Eighth Avenue was the Minnesota Strip, the Great White Way was a red light district, and the Crossroads of the World was ###-rated.

Swimming Across Canal Street. Today most people think of Canal Street—if they think of it at all—as the shortest distance between the Holland Tunnel and the Manhattan Bridge. But Canal Street is also a living remnant of New York City’s gritty, industrial, vice-ridden past. In the 1970s, it was an exciting milieu of artists, punk rockers, hip hoppers, squeegee men, s*x workers, Jewish radicals, and Chinese housewives. Though it’s gentrifying rapidly, there are still traces of its seedy history—if you know where to look. Along the way, we will make brief side excursions into Soho, Tribeca, Little Italy, Chinatown, and the Lower East Side. We will finish up with an (optional) sit-down meal in a Chinese restaurant with a shocking past. And we will answer the timeless question: was Canal Street ever really a canal?

Koreatown, Curryhill, And Beyond. Everyone knows Chinatown, Little Italy, and the Lower East Side. But how well do you know some of New York City’s more obscure dining destinations? In this walking tour, we will explore midtown’s surprisingly rich and varied cheap ethnic eating options, including Italian prosciutto, Russian pelmeni, Japanese musubi, West African cow feet, Korean fried chicken—and blood sausage, for the daring!—Indi/Paki chaat, and of course, Chinese pig feet. ALL FOOD INCLUDED.
