 your tour guide re-imagined


PlaceChase apps guide you in an entertaining and interactive way through New York City.

Make the city your own and discover its secrets whether you are at home on the couch or out and about.

PlaceChase is not your parents' tour guide.

It tells not just the facts, but the story, the rumor, the speculation and even the fake facts. A picture tells a thousand words, and at each Place on the Chase, check out the pictures, past and present, and the words too! Explore why it's there, how it came to be, what came before and how it all fits together. See the old maps, the original photos, the letters and the newspapers. Read, listen, look - do it all and connect the dots PlaceChase-style.

However you want to experience NYC, whether you 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 see New York. Experience it and fall in love all over again!
