Temperatures are falling, and that means it's time for "Friendly Native New Yorker Walking Tours" to go on hiatus--after all, it's hard to enjoy hearing a talk when you're shivering in your shoes! We'll be back at the end of April 2015 with more new tours as well as our regular calendar of tours. Join the Meetup group in the meantime to ensure that you'll hear exactly when tours start up again. Til then, consider signing up with our sister Meetups, also run by me, Great Places in Gotham (http://www.meetup.com/The-Great-Places-in-Gotham-Meetup/), for visiting museums and attending lectures in Manhattan, and my newest group, The (Mostly!) Bay Ridge Neighbors (http://www.meetup.com/The-Mostly-Bay-Ridge-Neighbors-Meetup/), which focuses on Brooklyn, and Bay Ridge in particular.
Usual description from late April through Hallowe'en:
Tired of going to the usual event at a bar and finding yourself with nothing to say--because there's nothing in particular to talk about at just a plain old bar??
Then come on a "Friendly Native New Yorker" Walking Tour!
See the city, learn some fun local history, and meet some new people, all at the same time.
Add a little urban adventure to your weekend by coming along with us.
