HELLO, I’M BILL
I live in I live on the Upper East Side..
I work in I work all over the city - including Harlem and Br.
I hang out in
Greenwich Village, Stone Street in the financial district.
Good day! I am still feeling like I'm learning New York, even though I grew up in New Jersey, just across the Hudson River. I moved here to get into publishing - when that was a thing perhaps entirely different from what it is now! - and quickly decided teaching was more my thing. After my M.A. degree I taught for two years - but New York City was getting its grip on me! I went corporate! But, then, my karma caught me and I became a tour guide - that's the kind of exploration and teaching I love. From the Lower East Side, then the East Village - and what's now growing downtown in Tribeca - come with me and discover what's new and old! History can be your best friend as I walk you through the history of old and modern New York.
