What we're about


Now that the colder temps are coming in, time for "Friendly Native New Yorker Walking Tours" to go on hiatus--after all, not much fun listening to tour stuff while shivering in your shoes! But we'll be back, like Persephone, with the spring weather.

Until then, check out my other Meetups that are year-round affairs:
"Great Places in Gotham" (http://www.meetup.com/The-Great-Places-in-Gotham-Meetup/), for visiting museums in the city; and" Lunch, Brunch, and Dinner in Bay Ridge" (https://www.meetup.com/lunch-brunch-and-dinner-in-bay-ridge/) for casual local dining.

REGULAR description for this group from April through Halloween:
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.
