Hello and welcome to the city that never sleeps!

I’ve been living in this amazing city since the mid 80s, so I have a lot of stories and insights to share with you. Whether you’re interested in history, culture, art, or entertainment, New York has something for everyone.

I live by the Hudson River's edge and on the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, and have a deep familiarity with various New York City neighborhoods, like Williamsburg in Brooklyn, and Harlem and the East Village in Manhattan. And for the last decade, I have photographed, written about, and explored block by block, some of the most fascinating streets in New York City. Unique places where you can savor the food, enjoy walking the city streets, and witness the culture of this historic and creative city.

Some of the highlights of my tours include a long walk on the Old Croton Trail overlooking the Hudson River, a deep dive into the iconic landmarks of New York, such as Rockefeller Center, St. Patricks Cathedral, and Broadway & Times Square. I can also take you to some hidden gems that only locals know, like  East Village Street Art, Lower East Side Ethnic Food,  Greenwich Village Coffee, and the endless curiosities of the tiny and vibrant neighborhood of Two Bridges that borders Chinatown & the South Street Seaport.

Whether you are looking for a classic or a customized immersive tour, or a long distance nature walk, I can tailor it to your preferences and interests. I can also provide you with a practical guide, tips, and recommendations on how to make the most of your stay in New York. Just ask!

I hope you will join me on a memorable and fun-filled walk of New York City. I look forward to meeting you soon!
