About New York City Hiking Tours

My hiking and New York City walking tours are a great way to see New York City. These NYC walking tours and NYC hiking tours are only given privately and  are available on request to individuals or groups. I have provided tours to accommodate school groups, summer camps and several major universities in NYC.  New York City walking tours are available in any season on weekdays and some weekends as well as evening hours. My New York City walking tours are “more walk and less talk” and are designed primarily for those who are in reasonably good shape. We cover a lot of ground at a reasonably steady pace and the goal is to see as much of a specific area in New York City as possible. A NYC walking tour or hike usually covers 2-3 miles but can be increased to  7 miles  for those who are more ambitious. The shorter tours  last almost 2 1/2 hours and the longer tours last about 4 hours  but there will also be ample time to “smell the roses”. (I’m also good at finding restrooms along the way!) Of course, any walking tour and hike that is given can be modified to fit the needs and schedule of the participants. Most importantly, my NYC walking tours and hikes are designed to be fun.
About Me 


Any New York City walking tour or hike is given personally by me. I am a native New Yorker who has lived most of my life in New York City.

I have been a licensed New York City sightseeing guide for about 10 years.  I've also been a hike leader for one of the major hiking clubs in the Northeast for 15 years. I have led hikes in the woods of upstate New York as well as walking tours of New York City where we have visited Central Park,  the Lower Manhattan Waterfront including Battery Park City, the West Village and the High Line, Riverside Park, and the East Village. I have led  tours for Open House New York, www.ohny.org, which is a citywide event that celebrates architecture and design. The New York City walking tours and hikes that I provide are carefully designed so that the participant can see as much of an area as possible yet still get some exercise. It is my hope that on each and every NYC walking tour you will experience something that will give you a sense of wonder and excitement -and you'll have fun.
