Bowery Boys Walking Tours takes the podcast to the streets

And now for a little news from the Bowery Boys: We’re excited to announce the launch of Bowery Boys Walks — our official small-group walking tours that are taking our show into the streets!

If you’re a regular listener to the podcast, you know that we try to bring a little fun and humor to retelling the events and characters that have shaped New York’s history. We’re taking the same approach in developing the Bowery Boys walking tours.

Each walk has been developed by an expert tour guide working together with us, and most will complement episodes of the show that have already been released. So, if you’re in the mood to study up before your walk, there will be at least one episode you can listen to to get “situated.”

Our first tour: Broadway

We’re kicking things off on center stage with our first walking tour: Legends and Landmarks of Broadway. Led by professional tour guide and long-time theater insider Jeff Dobbins, the tour will trace the history of Broadway theater and the theater district from the days of Oscar Hammerstein I up through Broadway’s “Golden Age”.

(Looking to study up before the tour? Check out our podcasts on Rodgers & Hammerstein, Florenz Ziegfeld, and Times Square in the ’70s.)

Several additional tours are currently in development and will be announced shortly. Stay tuned for that announcement.

About the tours

Bowery Boys Walks are intended to be as intimate as possible, so groups are limited to 15 participants. Because of this, we strongly recommend booking in advance through the website to ensure a spot on the tour.

Tours last two hours, and tickets are $35 per person. (Read more of the details here.)

Follow Bowery Boys walks on Instagram and on Facebook, where we’ll be posting photos from the streets, past and present.
