Before your trip to New York or when you are there, you can purchase one or more of the walking routes in my app. You can find these personalised routes in the app’s menu under ‘Walking routes’. You get here by tapping my head, or the top right menu button on the main page.
If you are on your mobile, you can also open this link directly to the walking routes in the app.
Then click on the walking route you want to walk, and click ‘buy route’. After completing the payment, you can see the full route in the app and the different points of interest you will pass.
New York Walking Routes
I have created all the walking routes in Eric’s New York App myself, and I try to walk them as often as possible so that all routes remain up-to-date. You will independently follow the route through New York based on various points of interest. These include attractions, my favourite places and unique hotspots. I hope the routes allow you to see as many different sides of New York as possible and discover even more of the city!
The following walking routes can be found in the Eric’s New York App:
Walking route Greenwich, SoHo, Chinatown & Little Italy
Start this walking tour at West 4th Street subway station and discover many different sides of New York in a short time. Stroll through the picturesque streets of The Village where you’ll see the Friends apartment, Washington Square Park, and Carrie’s home from Sex and the City.
Browse the shops in SoHo, experience China in Chinatown and explore Little Italy. The road continues to the Lower East Side where you will pass several nice lunch spots. The tour ends at the famous Katz’s Deli!
Walking route High Line Park – Hudson Yards
This walking tour takes you past special parks and a new neighbourhood in New York. Start the tour at Chelsea Market, through Little Island and arrive at Hudson Yards via the High Line. From here, stroll along the waterfront and finish the tour at Times Square’s iconic red steps.
Walking route DUMBO – Brooklyn Bridge
Discover Brooklyn on this walking route through DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. Explore the streets where you can find the famous brownstone houses, grab a coffee at the Empire Stores, and enjoy views of Manhattan from Brooklyn Bridge Park and as you walk across the bridge.
Walking route Williamsburg – Greenpoint
On this walking route, stroll through the hip neighbourhoods of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. From Domino Park, you will walk past beautiful street art, delicious donut shops and cosy breweries. Look around a lot, because there is so much more to see here.
Walking route Central Park
Walk the paths of Central Park and pass by well-known and lesser-known spots of this special park. The park is very big, but I have tried to pass by as many highlights as possible in about 6.5 km where it would otherwise be difficult to get to by bike. That way you get a good feel for Central Park.
See an Egyptian Obelisk, climb a castle, and besides the animals you’re likely to encounter, I’d also like to show you the stunning views. No matter what season it is, Central Park is always beautiful. The tour ends at Columbus Circle, from where you can easily explore New York further.
Walking route Downtown Manhattan
Want to discover Downtown Manhattan? With this tour, you can! This walking route takes you through the historic South Street Seaport, the Financial District and past the 9/11 Memorial. You’ll also walk past an area of Manhattan full of beautiful street art.
Walking route Tudor City – Roosevelt Island
Discover the known and unknown parts of Midtown on this diverse walking tour. You will walk past Bryant Park, the iconic Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Center. You’ll see landmarks on Park Avenue and go window shopping on Fifth Avenue.
Also, explore pristine Tudor City where you can find the United Nations office and with a bit of luck you can visit a secret garden in an office building. To top it off, you can take the cable car to Roosevelt Island, from where, among others, you can see Smallpox Hospital.
Walking route Upper West Side – Harlem
On this walking route, discover a different side of New York you don’t easily encounter. Walk by Columbia University, one of the world’s largest churches in Morningside Heights, the Apollo Theater in Harlem and the waterfalls of Central Park, among other things. I’d love to take you through these neighbourhoods full of culture and greenery.
See many churches, typical New York townhouses (brownstones) and the history this area has to offer. Although the distance of this route is not very long, it is still a brisk walk due to the elevation changes.
