As part of its On Foot series of walking tours, National Geographic Traveler
has put together a walking tour of New York City's Lower East Side
. The DIY walking tour features 12 different neighborhood spots, including shops, restaurants, markets and museums. Their choices do a great job of reflecting the neighborhood's immigrant roots (including a person favorite of mine, the Lower East Side Tenement Museum
), as well as the neighborhood's great shopping and dining. The only downside -- printing the map is easy, but it doesn't automatically include the addresses and descriptions of each of the spots on your printout, so you'll have to add your own notes to the map.
