For those looking to explore New York, Kimpton Ink48 is teaming up with New York City based creative director and photographer Amon Focus again to provide authentic New York City walking tour experiences, ideal for groups and meeting breakout sessions.
Designed to take both those new to and native to New York to places they haven’t seen, the tour offers guests a “behind-the-scenes” look at local New York. The tours focus a lot on art, and visits famed street art sites created by Jerkface, Icy and Sot, Dasic, Cake City Kitty and more. Throughout the experience tour guests will likely meet some of the artists in discussion, and will stop at local coffee shops, art galleries and boutiques. The tours, available in both Manhattan and Brooklyn, can be customized for two to four hours.
Kimpton48 and Amon Focus are also offering two Amon Walking Tour group add-on packages. In the Manhattan walking tour add on, guests will visit Little Italy, SoHo and the Lower East Side. In Brooklyn, guests will visit Williamsburg, Bushwick and Greenpoint. Both tours are two or four hours long and will stop at local stores, boutiques and art galleries as well. The tours are available only to groups of 10 or less.
Amon Focus is best known for his photo series “New York Said,” which inspired many of the stops on the tours. To get a preview of what type of street art will be seen, search @NewYorkSaid on Instagram.
