It was a pleasure to tour with your group. Our ferry ride was mostly fun and photography, because that's what the young ladies wanted, and when we arrived at the museum, we surveyed relevant exhibits so that you could go more in-depth on your own. I am glad to have connected you to the Ellis Island research library, and I... More

What a smart and fun group! I am glad we did a two-hour tour of the One World Observatory and the 9/11 Memorial. I am a strong believer that if my guests are going to experience the museum that they should have the energy to do so. Therefore, I limit the Memorial's touring to about 1-hour, because the museum is... More

Jared was the penultimate guide! He planned our tour with our wishes in mind, and it couldn't have gone smoother!

We wanted a tour focused on the 9/11 Memorial, the events of 9/11 and the history of the World Trade Center area. Jared did an excellent job. He was highly knowledgeable and peppered the tour with plenty of anecdotes about specific individuals - he made the history live. And although much of the subject matter was inevitably quite grim, he... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
