I will be at my humble 1 Times Sq. post Thursday afternoons in August arranging funny, informative four-hour walking tours of the outer boroughs. Let's eat some Indian, Chinese, Ethiopian food together when we eventually tour. Come stop by if you're interested...I will be happy if all you want to do is talk Yankees, Mets, Giants, Jets for two hours on end. I love the midtown crowd. However, if you walk with your pizza unfolded, lol, you better fold it, or else I'll get "hectic" on you! I'll think you're from Philly or something. Love you all and come visit me!

Staten Island has a vibrant and growing population from Sri Lanka, a destination preferred for people who escaped the civil war there in the 1980s and 1990s. There is a delicious Sri Lankan restaurant that I thoroughly enjoy on Bay Street...

08/25/2018

Looking forward to the return of Judge and Sanchez to the nyc landscape...

05/10/2018

Brett Gardner will become a better percentage hitter at his age if Boone establishes some sort of platoon with him, Frazier, and Ellsbury. I would love him to keep producing clutch hits! Anybody feel Cole and Hale could be packaged to make room soon for the Drurys, Birds?...

04/24/2018

Can you imagine when Greg Bird returns to the Yankee lineup to complement all the righty sluggers they have?

04/23/2018

I enjoyed my two-hour tour of the theater district with two lovely families from Kissimmee, Fla. who were visiting nyc for the first time. I hope you learned and laughed in your way back to Florida!

04/15/2018

"ON BROADWAY"--Laugh and learn your way down Broadway as I conduct a two-hour tour starting at the Ed Sullivan Theater (52nd and Broadway) and ending at the New Amsterdam, Saturday, April 21st, between 11 am and 1 pm! $150 for groups of three or fewer! Looking forward to seeing you...

04/05/2018

I am wondering if the Yankees can ever get substantial playing time out of Jacoby Ellsbury during the last two years of his contract. The Bombers can sure use him for outfield depth right now. Ouch. The Yankees also need payroll flexibility to make trades and his presence on the team may be inhibiting this...

03/29/2018

I am afraid the addition of Giancarlo Stanton, right-handed power hitter, is a redundant pickup. The Bombers add another right-hander, which will not protect Sanchez and Judge in a short series. That is why the injury to Bird, lefty thumper, was such an important setback.

When do pitchers in a short series ever fear home-run hitters who fan a lot? Your answers...

03/26/2018

I am launching a Times Square Easter And Passover holiday tour starting between 42nd and 7th Sat. March 31 from 10 am to noon. You can meet us without reservations last-minute as we laugh and educate ourselves up to the Ed Sullivan Theater.

Call me at (845) 642-9174 or at [email protected] if you require further information.

I AM COMING TO SEE YOU ALL SPRING LONG!--REGISTER SOON for my SLICING THE APPLE course at WESTCHESTER COMMUNITY COLLEGE, Valhalla, NY, a series of five two-hour classes on NYC history and the secrets hidden in NYC neighborhoods.

A GRAND BUS AND WALKING TOUR COMBO
SATURDAY, MAY 14
BROOKLYN; A NEXUS OF NOSTALGIA AND NOW
-BOOK A TOUR NOW!

Enjoy an entire Saturday in the borough of churches...and of so many relatives past and present...by beginning in Williamsburgh, an old-world ethnic mix of Puerto Rican, Italian, and Satmar Hasidim. Go there fast, before a recent incursion of young professionals dominate and change the neighborhood entirely! From there, you can sample the pierogies at Greenpoint, one of the country's largest first-generation Polish-American enclaves. Then cruise to Prospect Park, NYC's third-largest park of verdant green, amusement, and horse-training facilities, designed during the City Beautiful Movement of the 19th century. You will then explore the grand estates of Eastern Parkway--NYC's "other" champ elysee, a wide tree-lined street that houses remnants of the Underground Railroad, and home to an eclectic mix of people. It is the city's most colorful street during the West Indian parade. Your colorful journey concludes on Brooklyn's south shore, where you will see people fishing off the Manhattan Beach piers. Then listen to the Russian chatter of residents of Brighton Beach and Coney Island, home to the country's largest population of first- and second-generation Russians from the Black Sea and Central Asia...

TO BOOK A TOUR...call Nancy Galek at the Ramsey Community School, Ramsey, NJ, at (201) 327-2025. We will leave promptly at 8 a.m. from the Ramsey Community School, 256 East St., Ramsey. We will return to the Ramsey site at 6 p.m.

SLICING THE APPLE

GOOD NEWS: I will be teaching an entertaining, informative, five-session, two-hour class on NYC history and the secrets hidden in NYC neighborhoods currently, in a class called "Slicing the Apple," in two places this fall. The course can also help you prepare to become a NYC tour guide, if that is what you want!

You can register for this class at Westchester Community College by calling (914) 606-6109. I will teach these classes Sundays Nov. 1-29 from 3-5 pm. at WCC's Valhalla campus.

I will teach the same class at Rockland BOCES, 65 Parrott Rd., West Nyack, NY, Saturdays, Oct. 17-Nov. 7 from 10 am to noon. To register now, call (845) 348-3500!

UPCOMING BUS AND WALKING TOUR COMBO!!

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26: A BRONX TALE: Enjoy a Saturday touring a dynamic, misunderstood borough with the sights and sounds of people, neighborhoods, and vaunted, historical institutions, starting with Yankee Stadium, the proverbial "House that Ruth Built." We will then cruise up the Grand Concourse, designed literally to serve as the borough's champs elysee. On this concourse of mansions, you will take a tour through Edgar Allen Poe's country home away from the Manhattan bustle. You will then enjoy the gastronomical treats of the city's once-largest Little Italy--fast becoming Little Serbia--on Arthur Avenue, home to some of the best bakeries, restaurants, and markets in the world. The tour will end on the Bronx's own New England-style fishing village--City Island--home to fishermen, lobster catcheers, and some of the best seafood restaurants in the country. Exotic, colorful birds fly routinely over City Island...

I am conducting a Queens Kaleidoscope tour with 27 of my fans this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 pm. My combined walking- and bus tour will start on Ditmars Avenue and 31st St. in Astoria and wind up around 6 pm on Cross Bay Blvd. in Howard Beach. At 11:30 am, Saturday, we will stop to enjoy a delicious Indian buffet meal at Jackson Diner in Jackson Heights. Please stop by and say hello to me and my crew...

Know what? Arthur Avenue--and the whole Belmont neighborhood--is flourishing with new residents straight from the other side of the Adriatic. These are first-generation Americans from Kosovo and the former Yugoslavia who, instead of swimming to Italy, want to dip their toes into the American dream, and make their start in the Bronx...

01/15/2015

In Astoria, a growing neighborhood of residents from a Neopolitan village called San Filippo--about several thousand strong--is flourishing alongside the long-time Greek- and Brazilian-Americans, and hipsters. Some of the residents who came from this small Italian village may never have heard of Rome, but they have heard of Astoria, USA. So next time you tour Astoria, add some sfogliatelle to your list of spanokipita, egg lemon soup, and radissio...!
