You may have always wondered, "What would it be like to live in NYC?" We will walk together, savoring the nuances and excitement of life in one of Manhattan's most vibrant neighborhoods - the Upper West Side. We will begin by meeting in a charming "pocket park" - Verdi Park then jump right into the flow of a day in the neighborhood. First stop is the Apple Bank for Savings - like the city it stands in, this place is extraordinary; its interior is breathtaking. Next, we will visit one of the neighborhood's most epic residences, discovering it's history (and learning about its most bizarre amenity). From there we will pop in and out of the neighborhood's liveliest food shopping destinations - a classic New York experience where you will witness the rigors and rewards of grocery shopping in Manhattan. We will sample classic NYC snacks too! The beauty of Central Park and the many iconic landmarks that are a part of living on the Upper West Side are highlights of this walk. Ready? Let's go!
"Travel is intensified living,” says Rick Steves. I wholeheartedly agree! Seeing visitors' eyes light up at the sight of all that is amazing about this city is a real joy to witness and an experience I love creating for my guests. I'm a Licensed NYC Sightseeing Guide and love sharing the history, stories, quirks, beauty and larger-than-life aspects of the city where I was born and raised. I've traveled all over the world as a writer for travel companies but this is the city my heart calls home. Ready to explore and discover with a guide who knows this city through and through? Let's go!
