What we're about

Yes, Friendly Native New Yorker Walking Tours are officially on hiatus until the spring comes along with its warmer temperatures. After all, not much fun shivering in our shoes on a tour in January! But don't let that deter you from signing up as a new member, so that you'll receive all the notifications about when the tours start up again in April 2020. Til then, consider signing up for my other group listed below, The Great Places in Gotham. Looking forward to seeing you on tour!

Usual description, from April though 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.

Native New Yorker Linda is a licensed New York City tour guide (star rated by the Department of Consumer Affairs), has been a docent/educator at both The Merchants House Museum and the Fraunces Tavern Museum, and has led private tours for The Cooper Union, Bronx Community College, Hostos Community College, New York City College of Technology, and Saint Francis College, and as well as for the Municipal Arts Society's Jane's Walks, the Northwest Queens Paranormal Research Group, Asian Men/Black Women Connections, and the Society for Eighteenth-Century Music.

All tours are 2-2.5 hours long and cost $25 per person, $20 for seniors 65 or older, with proof of age. Sorry, please do not bring dogs or minor children age 17 or below on the tours. No audio taping or video taping allowed.
