A great behind-the-scenes tour of this ever changing place, led by a very knowledgeable guide with access to many off-limits areas

It was a hot day, but our Guide Doug kept us in the shade as much as he could and kept up a steady stream of information without overwhelming us. Would recommend this tour to anyone, especially if Doug is the guide! Anne Blake/Jud Rogers, Nashville, TN

Loved this program from beginning to end. Incredible weaving of history with the contemporary stories, and the rapport with the street vendors themselves was great. And the food itself was amazing! Highly recommend for native New Yorkers or for tourists!

Doug was a wonderful tour guide. We covered a lot of ground (literally!) including the less-seen parts of Prospect Park-- a waterfall and stream and the site of the original carousel. We learned a lot about the park's history. He had lots of photos from the park's past and stories about its past and present state. I left with a real feel for what makes the park special. Thanks for a wonderful morning at Prospect Park!

Despite a very windy day, our Tour Guide Doug still managed to take us inside and out of this massive facility filling us with amazing historical references while taking us through multiple locations within the Terminal. His knowledge of the space as well as his passion for architecture and New York history made this tour that much more engaging. I highly recommend this particular if not just for the views and historical significance - but to also get a chance to check out the Makerspace center where there are so many opportunities for anyone looking to expand on their own local manufacturing options.
