GANYC Guides Make News!

We love when GANYC members are spotlighted in the media, and here are some recent examples:

1. The Red Hook Star-Revue has just published an article in their November 2020 issue, about our Tour Your Own City site/initiative, and how NYC guides are your best tool to uncovering the hidden gems of New York City. The author attended a tour by member Jeremy Wilcox, and also spoke with member Maggie Browne, and VP Michael Morgenthal about their unique tours. In addition the link before, but here are scans from the physical paper:







2. Kevin Fitzpatrick has had several articles written about him lately! Not shocking for a member who is himself an award-winning author.

Kevin is also the founder of the Dorothy Parker Society, dedicated to the life and legacy of the famous American poet, writer, critic, and satirist. This past August, he was selected by Parker's family to represent them as, after years of trying, he brought back Parker's cremated remains to NYC from Baltimore. He then helped bury Parker's remains next to her parents in the Bronx's Woodlawn Cemetery. This saga was covered by the New Yorker magazine she helped found. Here is that article:
"The Improbable Journey of Dorothy Parker’s Ashes"

(he was also interviewed about this by WFUV)

Kevin was also just featured in the NY Daily News for the tours he offers around Veterans Day to honor those buried in New York who served their country in the armed forces. This year, he is doing the tours inside historic Woodlawn Cemetery. Kevin is the author of, among other history books, 'World War I New York: A Guide to the City's Enduring Ties to the Great War'. The article can be read here:
"Visiting heroes: A Veteran’s Day walking tour through Woodlawn Cemetery"


3. Dave Gardner publishes our quarterly printed newsletter, Guidelines. But he is also the NYC guiding world's foremost expert on all things Titanic. In the November/December 2020 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, they cover the Titanic buffs who follow the history, and even collect memorabilia and artifacts. The article speaks to Dave about his relationship with the Titanic's history and legacy, and the tours he does about it. You can read it here:
"Titanic Fanatics"


4. Jane Marx is featured in an article in the latest issue of Fine Art Connoisseur. You can see the article below, but there is a transcript here.
