T+L Reports: Sounds and the City
Looking for a different way to see New York?Using snippets from movies, music inspired by various neighborhoods, and street noise (beeping cabs, passing conversations), Soundwalk's CD walking tours help you explore less-touristed areas. Head to Katz's Deli on the Lower East Side and hear Meg Ryan's infamous fake orgasm, or join Robert Thurman in meditation upon entering Chinatown's Mahayana Buddhist Temple. CD's for St.-Germain-des-Prés and Les Marolles in Brussels are up next. $19.95 each; www.soundwalk.com.
