GANYC Guides Make News, Yet Again!

Several more GANYC members have been featured in the news recently!

1. Tommy Wilkinson keeps the spirit of the the Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral going downtown, just north of Little Italy. Tommy operates tours of this historic site, still an active church, and its unique catacombs. Currents News spoke with Tommy about these catacombs, his tours of them, and his relationship with the church.

2. Finally, historian and guide Kevin Fitzpatrick, also heads the Dorothy Parker Society. He is quoted in this NY Post article about the new Dorothy Parker-branded apartment tower that was built on the site of her now-torn-down childhood home. “The mission of the Dorothy Parker Society is to keep people talking about her, so in that way, Parker West fits right into what we’re trying to do,” Fitzpatrick said.

3. Jared Goldstein has made news all the way across the world! The Japanese paper Asahi Shimbum covered Jared's John Lennon tour, on the 40th anniversary of Lennon's tragic murder in front of his home at the historic Dakota apartment complex. Thank you Jared for representing the NYC guiding community to our Japanese friends! A Google Translate version of the article can be accessed directly here.
