About Your Guide
I'm a veteran journalist, a certified running coach, and a licensed New York City sightseeing guide. I have walked and hiked in dozens of parks, bar-crawled around unfamiliar neighborhoods, and run races in all five boroughs of New York City as well as on the other side of the Hudson in New Jersey and upstate New York. (Read more about my professional background here.) I hope you join me on this ever-evolving journey!
