It was a wonderful tour. A lot of information about the art even if we could not go inside. Things that were missed as a native New Yorker when I was growing up here. Thank you Phil

The leader provided a continuous interesting narrative around each art piece seen at several subway stations As a result , I"m on the lookout for art in the subway now, as the tour made me more aware of the process involved and the significance each piece provides to the stop, itself

I have lived in New York City for over 40 years and yet I still learn so much on Phil's subway art tours! It's fun and educational for residents and visitors both. Phil is a great guide - he just knows so much. Plus these are perfect walking tours for winter - just remember your Metrocard!

We just did a New York City subway art tour with Phil. Phil is absolutely wonderful. He knows his New York, he's prepared with great information, and he's a pleasure to spend an afternoon with. I highly recommend seeing New York with Phil, whether you're a local or visiting from out-of-town.

Phil is a great tour guide. I just attended his Downtown Manhattan Walking Tour and learned so much. Taking a walking tour in the city where you live is always a good idea - you see things you pass by all the time and never noticed. The Keith Haring sculpture, the 9/11 Bell of Hope and the relief map of New Amsterdam to name just a few. I highly recommend Walk About New York tours.
