Why The Street Teacher?
NY's Most Fascinating Stories
Once I was an English teacher and a corporate salesman. But, after living in New York for decades, I have become captivated by its history, and now cherish the chance to delve deeper each day. In my explorations, I have found legacies almost everywhere. Walk with me - learn what is really behind all those walls - and discover the true heartbeat of this city.

Lower East / West Side – Downtown Tours
I will introduce you to the area of Manhattan that has hosted the greatest concentration of immigrants to this city in the 19th and early twentieth centuries and is now the heartbeat of New York.
