About Me

Q. What do you love most about New York?

New York is like 100 cities in one city. You can pretty much travel the world without leaving the city limits. It's home to more endangered languages than any city in the world, like Irish, Cherokee, and Kriol! Also the subway, I genuinely love the subway!

Q. What's your favorite story to tell on tour?

Did you know the Brooklyn Bridge got built thanks to a woman?!

Q. What's one of your favorite memories from a tour?

I always love it when someone has a relative that came through Ellis Island. It's always cool watching someone connect the stories they grew up hearing with the place where it actually happened.

My Insider Tips for New York City

Q: Best time of year to enjoy New York?

The fall. It's less busy in than spring, and weather is great—better than the summer heat or the winter cold.

Q: What do you tell your visiting friends to see in New York?

A Broadway show! Treat yourself to a nice dinner afterwards. That would be my ideal evening.

Q: What are some unmissable foods and drinks?

Some of my favorite places to grab a bite are Queens' Night Market, Little Italy, and Chinatown.
