A brief introduction to New York with a private guide
We will begin at your hotel - or wherever you are staying - with a mutual introduction and a friendly inquiry of how the city has impressed you so far.
Much may depend on the weather, but I would take you all in Central Park and also I would take you all on a Subway Excursion (sounds grander that way!) downtown to Wall Street - and some of our smaller streets and more intimate encounters in the city: we can hear the financial hum on Wall Street, and hear the stories of Greenwich Village through its colorful past, and your guide will take you to and tell you all about the World Trade Center - and the tragedy of 9/11. These are just examples - you can suggest other neighborhoods, and I will be happy to help you explore them too.
New York can be spectacular - but I will try not to let it be overwhelming. Enjoy!
We will begin where you will arrive in New York, and proceed from that point through Midtown, with a brief excursion into Central Park.
We can survey the major sites and sights of midtown, and proceed back through history downtown to the beginnings of New York - and AMERICA - and see Wall Street, the World Trade Center, as well as Chinatown and Little Italy.
Obviously, I will take your suggestions and we may see another part of town altogether! Talk to me!

Our "Street Teacher" was great! Bill is knowledgeable of New York. Certain areas in our tour are held emotionally and he doesn't hide it. We enjoyed our time with Bill and look forward to returning-there is still so much left to see. Additionally, our original tour date was on a rainy day. Bill showed up and offered us to reschedule! What a great idea, so we rescheduled! Again, Bill showed up on time! Had we trudged out on our original date, I would have been soaked and chilled, even under umbrellas.
