Best Excuse for a Walking Tour of New York Even Though You Live Here (2008)

Accomplice: New York

One wouldnt necessarily say that having to ask a bum for directions is a sign youre on a quality walking tourunless that tour is Accomplice: New York. This integrative theatrical mystery go-round has walkers dealing with all kinds of shady characters that blend right into the city (in some cases, theyre actors; in others, theyre not). On the original route, youll venture from South Street Seaport to Soho, following clues to get you from one stop to the next, with bits of history thrown in for good measure. Accomplice also does a tour of the Village, though on that one youll have to contend with throngs of real tourists for sidewalk space.
