Part walking tour, part love story, NY_Hearts offers people a new way to discover NYC by stepping into the characters’ shoes. Set in four different NYC neighborhoods, participants enjoy drinks and other surprises from local businesses, which are featured in an audio story shared over mobile devices. Other bits of the story include character websites, online character vlogs, original music and visual art.
It’s a great time to be into transmedia and in New York this month. Between Tribeca’s Storyscapes and Carter’s project there is a lot to see. Hmm… maybe I should have Kickstartered a trip to NYC for this week.
NY_Hearts: Park Slope folds in experiences in the neighborhood–drinks and a few surprises–into the ticket price. The “curtain” lifts on the self-guided love story at 2PM every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through May the 12th.
