Owner and Real NY Tour Guide since 2007
My life as a New Yorker has shaped so much of who I am today: how I walk, talk, what I eat, how I eat it, how I think, feel, and interact with people. I can't help but feel that when I share New York with folks that I am somehow sharing a part of myself as well. Favorite NYC Restaurant: Caravan Of Dreams, East Village Favorite spot in NYC: Stone Street, Lower Manhattan

Real NY Tour Guide since 2008
I've been a New Yorker for over 20 years and I've been a tour guide for more than half that time. I'm in love with so many aspects of this great city: from the energy to the architecture, from the history to the pop culture, from the subway system to the diversity of people who use that system. My tours are loose, fun, and funny, and we'll cover all the above-mentioned topics and more. Favorite NYC Restaurant: The Islands, Brooklyn Favorite spot in NYC: Yankee Stadium, Bronx
