Sharing some delicious pizza with my 2 new French friends. Fri. April 08, 2022
Belatedly giving a shout out to and celebration of our Big Apple Greeter from Saturday, March 26, Adam Guy. He showed myself, my husband Ledger Heavilon and my stepson Douglass Boshkoff all around Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo. He's witty and knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we had an absolute blast. Thank you, thank you to Adam and to Big Apple Greeter for such a fantastic service.
Audrey was wonderful - she showed us many sites and gave us great suggestions
Highly recommend Big Apple Greater
Coming to New York again in December staying mid town. What’s hot to do and where’s the amazing places to eat at night and for breakfast. (4th visit and used greeter service when staying in Brooklyn - fellow UK Greeter)

Saturday, September 24th was a not-a-cloud-in-the-sky day. Our Greeter Leader, Dan Abatelli, gathered with 32 Greeters to take the ferry to Red Hook, Brooklyn, in celebration of International Greeter Day. The day took Greeters from the beautiful Visitation Catholic Church to the delicious Brooklyn Crab restaurant. Another great Red Hook spot to check out is Valentino Park and Pier- one of the best views of the Statue of Liberty in all of NY. For your own unforgettable NYC adventure, sign up for a greet today!

Now is the perfect time to set up a beautiful fall greet! Recently Sergio Alonzo, a lawyer with the EU in Brussels, went on a Greet with the goal of better understanding NYC (where he will be staying for a 9-month fellowship). During his greet he passed by the beautiful mosaics in the the recently opened corridor between Bryant Park and Times Square. In NYC art is everywhere you turn!
