Are you an artist with an edge? Get your Banksy on and see a surprising side of New York City during a half-day tour and graffiti workshop in the Bronx, a borough of diverse ethnic neighborhoods and cultural institutions.
You'll drive along the peninsula's rolling hills, parks, boulevards and art deco buildings, and pass by Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, Yankee Stadium, the New York Botanical Garden and more en route to Bronx's Little Italy with a knowledgeable guide who will point out the most impressive pieces on your journey.
Meet graffiti artists and discover NYC's hip-hop history as you learn street-art techniques during a hands-on lesson. Take inspiration from their stories and struggles, then throw up a piece of your own.
Leave your mark on the streets of NYC -- just don't get caught doing it!
