Best Self-Guided True Crime Tour of New York


Think of Walking & Stalking as your raspy-voiced, shifty-eyed guide to New York City’s seedy underbelly. The app will take you to the city’s darkest corners: past the West Side apartment where Norman Mailer stabbed his second wife in the heart during the party announcing his intention to run for mayor, and the Harlem ballroom where Malcolm X was shot. Without it, you might never know that you live next door to the house Truman Capote lived in while he wrote In Cold Blood, or work down the street from the methadone clinic Sid Vicious stumbled into after he allegedly stabbed Nancy to death, or that you are, right now, standing in front of the townhouse where three members of the Weather Underground accidentally blew themselves up trying to build a homemade bomb.
