New York City Art and Design Tour for PocketGuide

Very pleased to say that an audio-guided New York City Art and Design walking tour I wrote and recorded for PocketGuide is now available here in the App Store, for iPhone and iPad! It's meant to provide an experience somewhat off the beaten track, a tour through downtown Manhattan's art, architecture and design related sights (Chuck Close and Jean Michel Basquiat's studios, the Cable Building, New York Central Art Supply, the final location of Andy Warhol's Factory). The tour is split into two parts: the first starts on the Bowery, heads north through SoHo, and ends at ABC Carpet and Home. The second picks up at the Flatiron Building, takes in the former department stores on the Ladie's Mile, heads west on 23rd Street past the Hotel Chelsea (fun fact: it is NOT the "Chelsea Hotel," which is what I've called it all my life—learning experience!!) then goes south via the High Line, and finishes up at the White Horse Tavern. I had a great time working on this project; it joined up my love of narrative history with my love of wandering around the city and just looking at stuff—something I often forget to make time for, these days.
