Contrarian Tours

Lobbyists, levees, lowlifes, oh my! These timely tours ditch the typical spiel and confront local issues head-on, often with a dose of tongue-in-cheek humor [...]

Each of the Surveillance Camera Players' walks begin with a general introduction on the workings and evolution of surveillance cameras, and then zeroes in to identify numerous often-discreet cameras in a single Manhattan neighborhood -- some have close to 400! Far from spouting left-wing screed, the Players present their findings and encourage healthy debate over the pros and cons of our increasingly public lives. Take a peek at their hand-scrawled online maps of cameras in Times Square and other neighborhoods.
