We have just got back to the UK after an epic 5 days in NYC. Huge thanks to Dore Hollander our Big Apple Greeter who kicked off our adventure with a fantastic tour of Central Park. Dore was so friendly, personable and informative. She prepped us for our visit by sending us information via email which meant we had a totally relaxed experience. I would highly recommend the Big Apple Greeter service to anyone who wants a tailor-made tour. We saw all the big tourist attractions while we were in NYC and Central Park was one of the highlights. 5* 😍
Merci à Big Apple Greeter, pas encore à New York et déjà de bons contacts avec notre greeter Susan.... Elle s’intéresse à des choses d’ordre pratique pour nous, merci Susan Miller et à bientôt dans la « grosse pomme »...
How do I arrange a greeter please? This is just what y need. Solo traveler Sept 7-24. Thanks in advance!!

Sharing New York through the eyes of a New Yorker since 1992! Founded in 1992, Big Apple Greeter’s mission is to enhance New York City’s worldwide image while enriching the City experience for its visitors.

Connecting with business and leisure visitors from all over the US and the world, Greeters take visitors on informal, unscripted walks through one or more neighborhoods in any of the five boroughs, promote tourism throughout the city, and help visitors discover the ease of using public transportation.

The Little Island is the perfect summer spot! In a recent greet, Elise, a visitor from France, got the chance to explore the Little Island and came across chiming tiles- adding music to an already great summer day!

Hear from Bob Geller about his experience giving Big Apple Greeter’s first in person greet after the reopening:

“It was very exciting to be able to finally, after more than a year, "greet" visitors to NYC.

Christina and Lillia were, as expected, also excited, not only to visit a city they love, but having their request for a "greet" accepted. They had planned this visit only 3 weeks in advance. They were ready to come back to New York City.

They were so appreciative to meet me and spend the afternoon with a New Yorker!”

Even after this past year New York is still (and will forever be) New York. See below a German couple repping our Big Apple Greeter tee shirts with a poem to the resilience of New York City, written by Lester Barnett.

“It’s still. New York. It’s still New York.”

These shirts serve as a lasting reminder of the one of a kind experience visitors have, forming lasting bonds with the city and their greeter alike.

Live with Carnegie Hall: Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg 03/17/2021

Live with Carnegie Hall: Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsburg

On November 19th, 2020, Carnegie Hall presented Live at Carnegie Hall: Remembering Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Justice Ginsburg worked tirelessly to promote equal justice under the law throughout her life and career. But when she needed a respite from the pressures of the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg famously turned to the world of opera and classical music. Hosted by multiple Grammy Award winner Isabel Leonard—and featuring an interview with Justice Ginsburg’s children, alongside remarks and performances by Joyce DiDonato, Renee Fleming, Denyce Graves and Patrice Michaels—Carnegie Hall celebrates and honors the groundbreaking icon who gave so much of herself to ensure a more just world for us all.
