Explore the Real Brooklyn
Experience the real Brooklyn with me! Many people want to visit Brooklyn but just don't know where to start. I am here to change that: I will show you five completely different sides of Brooklyn in five different neighborhoods. You will get an overview of New York City's most populous borough, and I will introduce you to Brooklyn's history, culture and people. Covering five different neighborhoods, this is the most comprehensive Brooklyn tour available. You'll get to see how diverse Brooklyn truly is when I show you classic Brooklyn brownstone architecture as well as the 'hipster' side of Brooklyn, street art and vintage shops, hidden bars, amazing Manhattan views, an Orthodox Jewish community and grand historic homes. To be able to show you as much of this giant borough as possible, we are using the subway three times on the tour, but this will give you time to sit down and take a break in between exploring the various neighborhoods on foot. See "Where we'll be" for the neighborhoods we're visiting on the tour. Other things to note -If you book a private tour, I am able to accommodate specific requests for neighborhoods / sights to include. -Bring a valid MTA subway ticket (ideally a weekly card with unlimited rides) and wear comfortable shoes.

Harlem history with a community leader
Our experience bridges important time periods together. We begin at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the premier center of its kind in the world. We'll explore how Africans, forced to leave their homeland, came to both the Caribbean and the Americas through slavery. You will understand how they impacted food, music, popular culture and dance with exhibits, film or sound. Their struggle made Harlem a center for social movements from the mid 1880s to the present. We touch on the Trans Atlantic Slave trade, its impact on human relations between American-born citizens and immigrants at that time. We'll delve into the New Negro Movement, which sparked the modern civil rights movement in this country and explore depression-era exhibitions such as the recently restored WPA murals in Harlem Hospital. Together, we’ll discover how we can learn how to heal from the past to move towards a better future. If you know that you will be in town for several days, book early so I can assist with an itinerary that can include a lindyhop or tap dance class and /or food tasting. Other things to note Feel free to bring your own camera to take pictures and dress appropriately for the weather.

We kick off the experience inside a Hasidic home, and learning about what it takes to keep a Kosher home. Then its off to the streets of Crown Heights, starting with exploring the world famous “770” Synagogue, getting a glimpse into the hustle and bustle of daily prayer services.

Healing Abstract Painting Experience in Brooklyn Bridge Park
Enjoy a beautiful paint en plein air experience in a lovely lawn or table in Brooklyn Bridge Park with an abstract lover who has been painting professionally for five years. I will teach basic fundamentals and techniques to make simple abstract pieces. Each guest will be able to paint along with me, and keep their creations, and hopefully a very pleasant memory! Each guest will leave with two bookmarks, and two 4x6 post cards that we paint on. The examples in the photos are not representative of the exact exercises we’ll do. Types are artwork will vary based on preference. Our adventure will start with a breathing exercise to set a peaceful intention for our practice. After, we’ll get to know each other a bit, and talk about any previous experience with painting. Next, we will get into to the fundamentals about colors, mixing, and techniques to achieve different looks. Before we begin painting, I’ll ask each guest to channel a memory, emotion, or anything that will trigger a passionate muse for their pieces. Each person will get to pick two styles of abstract work, and I will teach you how the painting was created, so you can give it a try yourself. I hope to inspire curiosity and creativity for my guests, as well as a safe and positive environment to meet new friends! Please be on time, the experience of other guests, and quality of class is impacted by late guests.
Chelsea’s finest art galleries
Great for groups! And for solo travelers that want to join other art enthusiasts! I will select the best exhibits happening the day of the Guided Gallery Visit, and plan the art walk accordingly. We will visit 6 to 9 art galleries depending on our pace. In each gallery I will offer a summarized overview of the gallery’s history and the exhibition, and we will enjoy the art, immersing ourselves and discussing the works. It will be a 2 to 2.5 hour gallery walk. We will review the exhibits in in a manner that invites fun personal discovery and conversation among ourselves. Along the way, participants will get a rich overview of the Chelsea Art Scene. Great for teams and team building! Private larger groups can be arranged.
The Soul of Harlem Walking Tour
As a New Yorker, I’ve lived in all 5 Boroughs of NYC. However, my birthplace was Harlem. Thus, I will show you the place that is dear to my heart – the village of Harlem. This unique soulful walking experience will take place in one of four sections of Harlem - Central Harlem. This section was the Heart and Soul of the Harlem Renaissance and the Civil Rights movement in America. Our journey will begin with a birds-eye view of 125th Street looking westward – this will give us a photographic preview of some of the locations we will visit. We will then walk to the former homes of the Harlem Renaissance central figures, Langston Hughes, Madam C.J. Walker, James w. Johnson, etc. On this 10,000-step journey, we will pass several Harlem murals that capsulize Harlem’s glorious past. We will also see where Marin Luther King spoke, suffered a near-death experience, and was hospitalized. Two places of special interest will be explored – the Harlem Jazz Museum (Thurs-Sat only) & the Schomburg Library for African Studies (Mon-Sat). At the Schomburg, we will see a mosaic cosmogram containing the ashes of Langston Hughes underneath it. To round out our experience, we will walk upon Harlem’s “Walk of Fame;” and see monuments of Civil Rights trailblazers and the famous Sylvia’s Restaurant, named after the “Queen of Soul Food” Sylvia Woods. I’m looking forward to meeting you and your guests.
