  • "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tours!

     I've been on two tours, Brooklyn Heights and Revolutionary NYC and both have been fabulous. Linda's knowledge and insights to the city and past history is just incredible. Can't wait until the spring when she starts up again, but this Saturday's even should be fun to end the season

  • "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tours!

     Ahhh...if only I could walk through the doors of these glorious Emporiums in their heyday and be transported back in time to become one of those ladies ( carriage awaiting me-of course)strolling the aisles. The "latest" modern conveniences! Your heart's desire! We are so fortunate that these buildings are still with us and that Linda has taken the time to research their history and share it with us. 

    Valerie on Oct 25, 2015.

  • "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tours!

     My husband and I had the pleasure of taking Linda's Civil War Union Square Tour recently. Linda was very knowledgable and gave great insight into the past. It was interesting to learn the history of an area we would usually just walk through without a thought. We're looking forward to our next tour.

    Angela on Jul 28, 2013.

  • "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tours!

     If you closed your eyes and listened you could hear the rioters coming down Broadway. There was and is a lot to learn here about human behavior. Not a lot has changed in almost 150 years. Depending on your point of view that could be both good and bad. Either way this was a most enjoyable tour with what has to be the premier tour guide in NYC. 

    Richard on Jul 15, 2013.

  • "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tours!

     Wonderful.. I can't wait for the next one and so forth..New York is a wonderful city rich in people /immigration. movements history and wonderful architecture. Linda has artfully studied her subjects and the neighborhoods to bring all of this to life for us. This was an adventurous walk through the streets of Greenwich Village- whose historical buildings are protected by the Preservation Society. Legendary characters/politicians, poets, architects whose ghosts according to our masterful storyteller, Linda, still make visits....I always learn so much, and feel entertained and truly fortunate.
