Tours of the City - Step out and Discover! 

New York is many neighborhoods - more than just the 5 boroughs of the Greater New York.  There are Williamsburg and Brooklyn Heights - and Coney Island in Brooklyn.  There is Harlem and its many restaurants and impressive brownstones and historic and Hamilton Grange.  There is a whole world to New York!

But here are three of the more popular walks you can sample:

Some of The Street Teacher's Tours: 

1.) The World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial 
This walk takes between 2 and 3 hours, and begins at St. Paul's Chapel at 209 Broadway, between Fulton and Vesey Streets.  We shall meet closer to the Fulton Street Corner. We will speak about that day in Manhattan, and tour the chapel.  We will see the Memorial to those lost from American Express (who were working inside Number One World ).  You will learn about the people lost on that day and the heroic efforts of many during that time. 

Price (per person): $35 - minimum two persons

2.) Greenwich Village - East or West? Or both! 
This walk can be configured any way you like, because the Village is really three neighborhoods that link to each other in very comfortable yet distinctly different ways.  Most may really be thinking of the West Village, when they imagine the quaint and irregular streets and some of the historic eating and drinking places; while many others are thinking of the East Village when they remember the counter-culture of the sixties and seventies, when Fillmore East was the big deal in popular , and the Beats were a virtually established "old guard."  And then there's New York University - right in the middle, around Washington Square.  We can see it all!

A.The East Village Walk - 2 hours - begins at The Alamo @ 8th St. and Lafayette Street
Price (per person): $35 - minimum two persons

B.The West Village Walk- 2 hours - begins at the Northeast corner of 9th Street and 6th Avenue (the Avenue of the Americas) - near the PATH Train entrance; the north end of the West 4th St. subway station is also nearby.
Price (per person): $35 - minimum two persons

C. The West and East Villages Walk - 3 to 4 hours - Begins at the Southwest corner of W. 14th Street and 8th Avenue near the subway entrance.
Price (per person): $50 - minimum two persons

3.) Central Park, Midtown, and the Upper East & West Sides
Everyone has heard about Central Park - but have you really met The Central Park?! Come and explore everyone's yard and learn what makes New York really special! 

We will meet at The Pulitzer Fountain, in front of the Plaza Hotel, at 59th Street and 5th Avenue.  (Across from the Apple Store.) We'll be starting just above Midtown Manhattan, and crossing the Central Park to the Lincoln Center Neighborhood to the West, and and back through it again to the Upper East Side along the Fifth Avenue - all the time discovering new landscapes and interesting stories.  

This walk takes between 2 and 3 hours

Price (per person): $35 - minimum two persons

Walking tours are limited to a total of 10 people.

4.) Walk the George Washington Bridge through the Palisades to Tenafly, NJ
This is an all day walk, beginning in Washington Heights at the corner of W. 178th St. and Fort Washington Avenue - at the southwest corner of the GWB Port Authority Bus Terminal.  

Many have seen the bridge, but how many have walked across it - the most heavily trafficked bridge in the world? We will learn about the bridge and its construction, and about the world as it was back before the 30's as well as on through until today.  And then we'll leave the rushing traffic to enter the peaceful rustle of leaves and trees - and maybe animals! - as we enter the Palisades Interstate Park. 

We will end at a diner for real refreshment, and then board a bus for the ride back to the Port Authority Terminal at 42nd Street and 8th Avenue.

This is a wonderful autumn walk for city dwellers!  

Price (per person): $35 - minimum two persons

Walking tours are limited to a total of 10 people; please note that the tour may not go with less than 2 people.

The Talk of New York, our blog in which I relate our discoveries in the City as we walk and travel throughout its streets and avenues - and alleys and riversides.  I hope you click on it and subscribe - and contribute.  Yes!  You can make a difference!  I think your contributions to the offerings here at The Street Teacher will make you more a part of us - and all of us together a boost to New York.
