What we're about
The weather's starting to get colder, and that means that it's time for "Friendly Native New Yorker Walking Tours Meetup" to go on hiatus--after all, it's hard to enjoy a tour when you're shivering in your shoes! We'll be back in April with some brand-new tours, as well as all the favorites below. In the meantime, please do join us to receive any notifications, such as the dates of any upcoming tours. You might also consider joining our sister group, also organized by me, "Great Places in Gotham Meetup" ( http://www.meetup.com/The-Great-Places-in-Gotham-Meetup/ ), to visit museums in the city and attend lectures on history, architecture, or art-related topics.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NO DUES TO BE PAID FOR JOINING THIS MEETUP. THERE'S A COST IF YOU ATTEND A TOUR; THAT'S IT. DON'T BE FOOLED BY A SCAM EMAIL MAKING THE ROUNDS. I DIDN'T SEND IT, AND WOULDN'T RECEIVE ANY MONIES PAID/DONATED VIA THAT BOGUS LINK.
The "April through Hallowe'en" description for our group:
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.
