Starting out in city hall park, our guides found us quickly and we set off with Astrid. She gave us a bunch of info on all the downtown government buildings, and pointed out where different shows film, such as where they always show the lawyers in Law and Order coming out to the press. Next we made our way to Chinatown, and had som amazing dumplings at a shop that could hold maybe 8 people at a time. The most amazing part of these dumplings was that the price was 5 giant ones for $1.25! Of course this was included with the tour but make sure you look at the menu board. Next we made our way to Little Italy and stopped at the oldest cheese shop in America. It should be mentioned that it was raining off and on (more on than not) the entire tour. Astrid did her best to stop under overhangs so we could put the umbrellas down for a bit. Next, we went and had traditional Jewish knishes. I loved this because I had heard about these before, but don't think I would have ever tried them on my on. Delicious, and in an authentic knishe shop. We ended our tour at a German beer garden, and Astrid was very good about giving everyone directions for what they wanted to do, whether it was walk the Brooklyn Bridge, go back to Little Italy, or like us, just catch a cab to head to the hotel for some rest.
