Turnstile Tours cover
Mission Turnstile Tours’ mission is to advance public knowledge about the meaning of place, foster connections and understanding between people of diverse backgrounds, and inspire and reflect a culture of community participation through providing welcoming, well-researched, inclusive, and engaging experiences and resources to people of all ages and abilities.
Description Turnstile Tours is a company that highlights the ever-changing nature of New York City neighborhoods through conducting in-depth research, working with community partners, and seeking out new avenues to engage the public with the urban landscape. In addition to developing tours, we also work with partners to craft a variety of public programs and exhibits. For each of our projects, we partner with a community non-profit organization that works to keep neighborhoods vital and thriving, and a portion of all of our ticket sales goes towards supporting them. We are a New York State-registered benefit corporation, meaning that we subject ourselves to an annual external audit of the performance of our social mission, in addition to auditing our financial performance.
