New York City Skyline at DuskMy favorite world travel experiences are always when I have a local guiding me before or during my trip. We all love to have recommendations from someone we know and trust before we hop on that plane (and if you don’t know me, yet, feel free to learn more). Please explore the New York City Insider Guide at your own pace. I hope it helps you plan your New York City Vacation, so you not only go home as a NYC Insider, but plan to visit us again soon.

If you come to NYC, stay in a Times Square hotel, jump on a Hop On Hop Off New York City Bus Tour, go only to the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, well, you may actually never run into another New Yorker. And you certainly won’t get to experience some of the most amazing things this city has to offer. I hope to be able to show you how do it all – see our world-famous and historical attractions, while also experiencing some of our local culture.


Don’t believe a word of the hype – we are some of the most diverse, friendliest, smartest and fun people you will ever meet. I mean that wholeheartedly – it takes me almost 30 minutes to walk the two blocks to the subway, because I’m always saying hello to my neighbors, doormen, shoe guy, manicurist, bartender, dry cleaner, deli, gym…and that’s all on my block!

I love this city so much and nothing makes me happier than when you love it, too. Please enjoy my insider tips, the kinds of things you discover only when you have hundreds of friends and family members and our collective prior generations passing down “insider” information.

I have no connections with the New York City tourism and travel industry, so all the information on this site is genuine. I will never recommend anything unless I’m absolutely confident it’s the best (and by my and NYC standards, that’s pretty high!). Please enjoy all the real information from a real person who lives here.

I can’t wait to show you some of my favorites.

Thank you for visiting the NYC Insider Guide …welcome to our city and I hope you love it as much as I do!
