An index of museum tourguides is available at Soundwalk has some very interesting tours for new york neighborhoods and other locations, such as India. They are $15, the going rate for audiotours, but focus on unique topics like Bronx Graffiti and DUMBO.


Podcasts & Soundseeing
Two high quality podcasts that focus on many different cities are iPod Traveller and Rick Steve's radio show. Learn Out Loud has a category has a category for travel podcasts and there are a number of good ones.

Soundseeing tours are audio tour that uses the ambient noise and the descriptions by the tour guide to give the listener an accurate depiction of the surroundings. There are many soundseeing podcasts of varying quality. Audiocollective and Soundseeing Tours are two aggregators that identify the best.

iPod Notes
Several sites have used the iPod notes function to create city guidebooks. The WCities guides are very thorough. My City Mate lets you customize the notes - it's also a social networking site that encourages you to add your reviews and create city "tribes" for more tips. IprepPress also created several city guides based upon information from WikiTravel. All of these are free.


Books
Michael Palin's excellent travel books can be read for free on his webpage.

Another free NYC Podcast, Rockefeller Center from Sounds For Sight.

I remember going to Rockefeller center as a kid, ice-skating under the Christmas tree, eating roasted chestnuts, watching parents get into fist fights with each other. The memories.
