The Counter Cultural Tour of NYC

(STILL OPEN FOR OPERATION IN THE MIDST OF CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, please book 3 weeks in advance. Open Tuesday-Wednesday)

This tour is presented by a 5th generation local who was twice featured in the New York Times for tour guiding. On this tour we will explore the zany and unusual history of how New York City became the unofficial capital of the world that it is today. From peg legged Dutch governors, to pirates, to slave revolts, and riots -- we discuss the history that often gets passed up on in favor of more mainstream subjects. If you are looking for something that is off kilter, this is the tour for you!
