storytelling with a twist
always fascinating neighborhoods
in an app that is fun
The PlaceChase app has been completely reconfigured so it's now even more engaging to explore NYC
Each tour now includes the full range of neighborhood sights, together with a suggested tour route, but YOU now get to choose which of them to visit, and in what order
See as much or as little as you want, on YOUR terms
your tour guide re-imagined
PlaceChase apps guide you in an entertaining and interactive way through a New York City neighborhood.
PlaceChase is not your parents' tour guide.
It tells you not just the facts, but the story, the rumor, the speculation and the fake facts too. Each Place on the Chase includes 5 to 25 minutes of text and audio that reveal its often overlooked significance and impact. Connect the dots PlaceChase-style.
Whether you are looking for an afternoon of family fun, are a tourist planning a day's sightseeing, or are just plain curious about the city around you, PlaceChase is the perfect guide for you.
Don't just see the sights that everybody else sees. Explore them and uncover the forgotten or unfamiliar points in between.
Don't just visit New York, experience it!
