What You'll Get
Photography is the truffle hog of life, capable of rooting out treasure in vast, flavorless expanses of mushroom-free moments. Hunt for lasting memories with today's Groupon: for $12, you get to go on a 2.5-hour walking and photo-taking tour from Photo Walk-abouts (a $25 value).
Photo Walk-abouts' camera-friendly tours of the city lend budding shutterbugs the keen eyes of experienced photographer Lora Danley. Amateur aesthetes first receive a quick lesson on camera basics, then get shuttled off to one of five areas to begin their tour: Central Park, Greenwich Village, the Financial District, Harlem, or Chinatown. Students learn historical details of the sites that they pass and are set loose for brief free-roaming sessions to try to capture distinctly Manhattan tableaus, such as a pigeon drinking coffee or Jay-Z hanging out with Spiderman. The beginner-friendly tours run year-round, fearing neither rain nor shine in their efforts to turn darkroom dilettantes into Big Apple big shots. Consult the schedule for available times.
