I live in Hamilton Heights in Harlem which is in upper Manhattan on the West side . I have been a Tour Guide in NYC since 2008. I love the history, culture, diversity cuisine and everything about the greatest city in the world. I have two children one who works for the NY Yankees and one who is studying Nursing in upstate New York. I am an avid sports fan and especially enjoy attending Yankee and NY Islanders games. I am also an avid athlete and have explored much of the island of Manhattan by bicycle. Finding great places to eat and discovering new things to do in the city keep me and my girlfriend quite occupied.. I also like to leave the city and find great places to hike and cross country ski. Traveling out of the country is something I have also been able to enjoy visiting cities in Europe and South America and exploring the mountains and countryside for diversity. Variety is the spice of life and I get to enjoy it at home and abroad.
I am a licensed NYC Tour Guide with vast and extensive knowledge on transportation, history, local culture, dining, local sports, museums, sightseeing, landmarks, current events , hidden treasures, parades and festivals.
More than anything else I love to help visitors navigate around a city that can often be a bit overwhelming and intimidating. Timing often is everything so there is a good and a bad time to do certain things in the city especially when it comes to popular venues like the Empire State Building , Museum of Natural History and The Museum of Modern Art. I help visitors find the best and cheapest way to buy Broadway tickets and discover free entertainment and festivals. Often some of the best things to do in NYC are free like walking over the Brooklyn bridge. It's important to know what places and neighborhoods are best to avoid at certain times and how to plan your day to get the most enjoyment possible with the least amount of hassle. I also like to direct tourists to the best publications and newspapers to find out what's currently going on and where to go.
With a little bit of help visitors to NYC can fully enjoy their time no matter what the age or the wish list.
