About Big Apple Greeter
Since 1992, Big Apple Greeter has been pairing visitors with New York City volunteer Greeters who explore the city together, free of charge, on foot or by public transportation. Warm and welcoming, a Greeter meets up to six people and shares his/her personal knowledge of New York City's culture, people and diverse neighborhoods. A Greeter is not a professional tour guide. Instead, a Greeter is a new friend who is ready to spend two-to-four hours sharing the city he/she knows and loves.
