Even for longtime New Yorkers, sometimes nothing beats an extended stroll through the city. Now, data scientist Randal Olson, who recently went viral with the “optimal U.S. road trip” map, has used his algorithm to create an “optimized walking tour” (ideal for those who plan to never leave Manhattan).

Wear comfortable shoes, because this walking tour stretches 14.5 miles and encompasses 27 stops, according to Curbed. Theoretically, the entire tour only takes 5 hours — if you never stop.


Here is the complete list of stops in order:
