For tourists who enjoy Winter Walking
There are a plethora of tours taking place at the moment, even in this less-than-desirable weather.
Big Onion has been offering such tours for the better part of two decades, and this month they are introducing clients to some interesting enclaves of the city. Two tours that piqued my interests are the Multi-Ethnic Eating Tour (taking place January 8, 17 and 31) and Gangs of New York (January 15 and 25). Check out more tours at http://www.bigonion.com/.
Gotham Walking Tours offers three types of outings: food tours, ghost tours and indoor tours – the latter of which probably sounds spectacular to the frozen tourist. These include tours of major sites like Grand Central Terminal, Rockefeller Center and the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. For more info call 646-645-5782 or email [email protected].
Joyce Gold History Tours of New York won’t resume until March of 2010, but those interested in the upcoming schedule for that time can visit the website (joycegoldhistorytours.com) and join the mailing list.
