About

I’m a Manhattan resident originally from small-town upstate New York. Married, dog and cat owner, inveterate walker, cyclist and explorer, I love history, talking to strangers, cracking puns, and showing people around New York, the greatest city in the world. After working for several years in news and PR, I became a licensed sightseeing guide in 1995. Since then I’ve given tours by bus, bike and on foot. I love a good chocolate and worked up the Chocolate Lovers’ Tour of Midtown Manhattan. I know the ins and outs of Chinatown, and its shops and restaurants. I volunteered after September 11, and tell personal stories of the World Trade Center.  I go to the Statue Of Liberty at least 100 times a year. I designed walking tours of Central Park, High Line Park, Greenwich Village, and Fort Tryon Park at the north end of Manhattan, home to the medieval-themed Cloisters Museum. Let's get together, and I'll show you this wonderful city.
