I am a retired history teacher and currently an adjunct professor teaching history at a local college, but now devote most of my time to being a licensed New York City guide. Additionally, along with my husband, who is also a licensed tour guide, I have co-authored a book on New York City, have a local radio show about travel and leisure with a focus on New York City and its surroundings atnd write columns on New York for a variety of publications. Also, I have contributed to programs on the History Channel, the Travel Channel, ITV London, the BBC, German Television, French Television and the Japanese Animal Planet.
To date, my husband and I can offer 86 different tours of New York City and the local area which cover a wide range of neighborhoods and themes. Also, we offer lectures on New York City to groups of all ages, ranging from young children to senior citizens.
What started out as a hobby, has turned into a passion!
