Choose from three fascinating two-hour walking tours, and explore the colorful niche art galleries of the trendy New York neighborhoods of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge) , LIC (Long Island City) and Williamsburg.
Led by a professional guide and experienced curator, you will visit a variety of galleries and uncover a wide selection of artwork, including contemporary, emerging, paper and street art. On all tours you have the opportunity to talk with welcoming and engaging gallerists and even purchase work on display.
