Downtown Alliance Mobile App Named Official App for Downtown Culture Pass

On the second anniversary of the Downtown Culture Pass, New York’s Downtown museums have named the Alliance for Downtown New York’s mobile application as the official mobile app for the Downtown Culture Pass.

The app, “Downtown NYC,” is supported by iPhone and iPad platforms. It is available in Apple’s iTunes App Store by searching for “Downtown NYC.” expanded the program’s offerings to include additional participants and increased benefits.  Launched to help tourists, residents and workers discover the latest events going on below Chambers Street, this app features information on all of Lower Manhattan’s renowned cultural institutions, retailers, restaurants, hotels, and more.

The Downtown Culture Pass was founded in 2010 as a six-month pilot program to highlight the multiple cultural attractions located within convenient walking distance of each other south of Chambers Street.  Due to its success, spurred in part by increased tourism in Lower Manhattan upon the opening of the 9/11 Memorial, the Downtown Culture Pass became an official program in 2011.

Recent enhancements to the Downtown Culture Pass include:

• Free admission to the Anne Frank Center USA
• Free admission to the South Street Seaport Museum and 10% discount at Bowne & Co. Stationers
• Free walking tour by Wall Street Walks (increased benefit from a 50% discount)
• Discounts at J&R Music and Computer World and New York Water Taxi
• $3 off tickets to Dialog in the Dark (
• An official mobile app: the Downtown Alliance’s “DowntownNYC” smartphone app, available in Apple’s App Store

For the single price of $30 for adults (18+), $15 for youths (13-17) and $5 for children (6-12), the Downtown Culture Pass grants each ticket holder unlimited admission and/or other discounted benefits for three full days to any and all participating museums, a walking tour and discounts on purchases at participating neighborhood businesses.  The pass may be purchased online at, or in person at the Museum of American Finance, the Museum of Jewish Heritage or the National Museum of the American Indian.
