Kyle Hand holds a Master's degree in Screen Studies from Brooklyn College's Feirstein Graduate School of Cinema. For his thesis, he both analyzed and created virtual reality videos on New York City history (link above). Following his academic journey, he learned that history is best communicated in physical space and with real people, so he sought to become a licensed tour guide. Today, he loves meeting people from all walks of life and sharing his enthusiasm for the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan. In his tours, Kyle aims to inspire curiosity for our great city, as he concludes his tours with big picture questions. Kyle finds the beauty of history is in the mystery.
