For curious New Yorkers and bold visitors, use a portable CD player, headphones, and an accompanying map for a guided walking tour of a new kind. It's a unique experience, one that's designed to provide a revitalized awareness of New York City neighborhoods. Each SoundWalk is 50 minutes of walking adventure through a neighborhood, guided by a local personality, packed full of interviews and cinematic sound effects. SoundWalks are living documentaries about the city, but instead of experiencing it through the remoteness of your TV, you will savor the city in its reality.
Novelist Paul Auster leads this unusual walking tour of the Lower Manhattan neighborhood surrounding the site of the World Trade Center, from St. Paul's Chapel to a park bench on the Hudson River. Archival recordings, a sound work by artist Stephen Vitiello, a recollection by Philippe Petit of his 1974 high-wire walk between the Twin Towers, captured performances by Odetta and Bill Frissell (among other musicians), and interviews with witnesses to the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 all evoke the history of the neighborhood with surprising freedom from sentiment.
