Description

SOUNDWALK LITTLE ITALY WITH VINNY VELLA

SOUNDWALK

Soundwalks are audio tours that use the cityscape as a backdrop for a fiction, like in a movie. You can escort Virginie Ledoyen through a romantic flanerie at the steps of musician Benjamin Biolay’s in Saint-Germain-des-Prés... Paul Auster evokes the memory of the World Trade Center for you... Jazzy Jay takes you to the Bronx to tell you about the birth of hip-hop...

One neighborhood, one talent, one story. You install Soundwalk on your iPhone, then take a one-hour tour guided by the voice of an iconic figure from the city. Each character intimately unveils her neighborhood. Walking in the shoes of an insider, you can saunter through the back doors and secret courtyards, and listen to interviews with neighborhood residents. Actors, scenario, original soundtrack... Soundwalk is a cinematographic experience set in the real world.

MEET WITH VINNY VELLA IN MANHATTAN'S LITTLE ITALY

Walk the streets with Coppola and Scorsese, be part of the family, be part of the mob, just for one day. The Mafia long controlled the neighborhood, and its influence is well preserved regardless of the trendy direction of neighboring NoLita. Smile at a supermodel strolling by an Old Italian couple sitting outside, basking in the sun. Have some food, have a steaming espresso, stay for a while. You’re a wise guy now.

A friend of Jim Jarmusch and Martin Scorsese, a Soprano cast member, Vinny Vella is someone you don’t want to mess up with, so stay on his good side. A great actor, a real mobster, a neighborhood celebrity, Vinny will tell you things you don’t want to know, “but take it easy kid, you’re gonna have a good time.”

Vinni's Little Italy

:
Absolutely perfect for a quick get-to-know, get-to-feel this very intimate part of NYC. I've been here many times before, but this gave me info I'd Never have known just by eating or shopping at a few places. And the neighborhood folks he introduces along the way are Real! I met and shook hands with several of them!! Worth the money for the AP.

2/5 stars

Ok, but not for kids

:
I got this because it had decent reviews, and it was rated 12+. However, it was not appropriate for kids of that age (unless you like your 12-year-old hearing F**k and S**t repeated at least 50 times each). Other than that, the app would be better if it paused at the end of each chapter to allow you to resync your location with the narration (and the pause/play button is way to close to the chapter selection button).
