GANYC Certified Guide

Stan O'Connor


Hi, I’ve been licensed in New York City for over 25 years. I work with school groups, seniors, organizations, travel agents and coach companies from all over. With interest in history, architecture, geology, wildlife (important at our parks and beaches) and the myriad of cultures here in New York City. I enjoy those teachable ‘aha' moments when the customer leaps to a fuller understanding of the experience they’re having.

I'm versatile: I do tours via boat, coach, on foot and by subway train. I offer a tour based on the hit TV show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It takes you to all the places she visits in Greenwich Village. Take a look: (and please subscribe).
