What is PlaceChase?

Your private guide to the sights and neighborhoods of New York City right on your phone. We provide a suggested route, but you decide what to see, when and how. Explore each Place, enjoy its backstory and if you want more, choose from a menu of deep-dives.

Amazing content

Go beyond the names, dates, facts and figures. PlaceChase delivers storytelling with a twist, tells the tales others do not tell and connects the dots in ways you'd scarcely believe possible. Tons of great historical images too. 

Step out of the group tour crowd 

No scheduling, no blackout dates, no hanging around. You choose when to stop for a photo and when to pick-up the pace. Download the app once and it's yours forever. Enjoy the tour as often and whenever you want.

Respecting your space

You'll never see an ad.

We don't track you, collect your data or sell your info. Download your tour and enjoy the whole thing for just $5.99, with no in-app purchases. Really, none!
