What to expect

Over the past couple of years, the variety of foods served up by New York food trucks have been readily increasing. Food carts are no longer just serving the traditional chicken over rice. Now, there are gourmet food trucks offering anything from authentic Belgian waffles and French cuisine to lobster rolls. We've done the legwork, so we can guide you to the tastiest and most innovative cuisines prepared and served on the street. Meet the owners of these businesses on wheels, who bring a passion and love for the experience, tastes and pleasures of the meals they cook up.

As New York's largest central business district, Midtown Manhattan is indisputably the busiest single commercial district in the United States. The great majority of NYC's skyscrapers, including its tallest hotels and apartment towers, lie within Midtown. More than 700,000 commuters work in its offices, hotels, and retail establishments. Somebody has to feed all these hungry people. Bring on the Food Trucks & Carts. Their delectable cheap eats cater to the lunch crowd in this bustling part of town. New Yorkers want their food good and they want it quickly. It's a match made in food heaven.

About Sidewalk Tours...

The story behind Sidewalks of NY Tours began a decade ago when it's founder, J.D. Hirsch started taking friends and family on walking tours of the city he loves. His biggest motivation was to make sure his guests experienced The TRUE New York. Through years of exploration, he had discovered the secret hideaways, and hidden gems that make New York unlike any other city in the world. He combed the streets, tasting authentic ethnic cuisines and culinary delights not found in any guide books. His lengthy walking adventures took him to dinky mom-and-pop specialty food shops, and ethnic eateries, which have stood the test of time. He began compiling a best of list in search of the best delicatessens, bagel and knish shops, coffee houses, bakeries, candy stores, hamburger joints, pizzerias, and so much more. A friend, who was visiting from out of town, noticed J.D.'s passion and enthusiasm showing people his discoveries, and suggested he start a walking tour business. And the rest, as they say, is history. Our mission at Sidewalks of NY Tours is to give exceptional walking tours of New York, so our customers will revisit these neighborhoods with confidence, and enjoy the various cultural options they provide. Our creative and fun itineraries, and friendly and knowledgeable tour guides are committed to making your tour the highlight of your stay in The Big Apple. Let us guide you on a journey to discover The True New York! Bon voyage!
