Research and legwork are what make my tours so entertaining and satisfying. I walk my routes regularly to see what’s new, and what has disappeared. The results are worked into my next tour, to do the best I can for you, the customer.

My background is in broadcast news, and these history disciplines:
Black & Native American
and antique engineering.
I love showing examples of old technology on tours. Demonstrating progress and innovation are great ways to intrigue the mind. It makes the tour that much more fun!
I do two different tours about the American Revolution. One down in the Financial District, the other way up in Fort Tryon Park, 12 miles away!
Movies and TV endlessly fascinate me. Not only do I mention film scene locations, I do tours about movies, TV and even comic books. (After all, most superheroes are New Yorkers.)
I’m from rural upstate New York. Moved down here after college, and found myself struck by all the buildings, infrastructure and history to be found here. My wife and I live in Inwood, the upper Manhattan district where very few tourists go. It’s so beautiful up here! Come see it with me.
