I am a happy, glass half-full kind of guy who has fallen in love with New York and I want to share this amazing city with everyone! I work in finance in a job I really enjoy but in my spare time I love discovering new places and trying out the myriad of restaurants that never stop popping up. I know the best places to eat and also a number of really cool bars so if you want to see more than just Times Square then I'm your man!

Friendly, knowledgeable New Yorker who enjoys exploring the city I love and sharing it with others. My prior work, interests and travel experiences enables me to relate to visitors from various backgrounds. I have had an expansive career as a teacher, a financial product salesman, a health care executive and energy reduction / environmental business salesman. The thread throughout my life has been an involvement in politics on a local, state and national level. Now that I’m semi-retired I do what I enjoy most; spending time with my family and sharing my love of NYC with others. For the last 5 years, as a licensed NYC tour guide, I have been traveling through the city with guests on the seat of a bicycle. I look forward to meeting you.
Edward Is Great For
Visual Merchandising expert, Fashion, Art & Design enthusiast. NYC is constantly evolving with creative energy, new things to see and do. I'd like to share my finds in this great metropolis with you! I enjoy meeting new people, exploring the city, and discovering new neighborhoods. The newest in retail, shopping, arts and culture; both on and off the beaten path in Manhattan are my specialty. Itineraries planned around your personal tastes and criteria.

My name is Jenn, I'm born and raised in Queens, NYC. NY is my playground. I figure I have to LIVE in the greatest city, not just go through the motions of an everyday routine. I am constantly looking for new things to do, see, eat and well, enjoy. I've worked in restaurants and nightlife most of my life so I know a lot about dance, music, food and the different "scenes." I also teach yoga and am well versed in that "scene" as well. I have a 12 year old son who keeps me involved in sports. I have also traveled extensively. I like the idea of showing a true depiction of the "new" New Yorker. So many of my out of town guests tried their first exotic dish here in NY under my tutelage! I can make people feel comfortable in all sorts of situations and have a great sense of humor, I swear.

Off the beaten-path
When people ask if I'm a Native New Yorker, I tell them that Dad was from Brooklyn, so I claim rights. I grew up in New Jersey and moved into the city after college. I've been showing visitors around the city on a regular basis since 2003. I love to travel, and enjoy meeting other travelers.

I am an eclectic person. In my life I have been balancing the two careers path of producer and journalist in the culture field, always scouting new locations and trying to report about them in the most engaging way. I love off-beaten path, this is kind of my passion, and I do love as well to figure out how past time have survived in the present of a city. People like my irony and my being a down to earth person. A little note: I had lived for five years in NYC where I worked as a guide for Italian, from time to time
