Big news. The tours, less so. But both in the same newspaper.

Big news. The tours, less so. But both in the same newspaper.

  Week after week the New York Times generously lists us among the few walking tours they include in the Spare Times listings. We remain quite humbled.

  And two more outlets weighed in with kind words this week also. Check it out:

  Finally, a terrific Trip Advisor review worth repeating:

   "My girlfriend and I took the Artists tour this past Saturday. We had the pleasure of taking it with the son of Fred McDarrah himself. He provides you with postcard sized photos of iconic sites to help you really imagine the city's Downtown art scene during that time. Even though my girlfriend and I did not know that much about art history, our tour guide provided a ton of insight into how it came into being. I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in history, art, and civic policy. My one recommendation would be that I would have liked the tour guide to not have focused so much on how much the places referenced in the tour were affected by gentrification and real estate development. I actually happened to agree with him, but it was something that I felt kind of took away from my experience of the tour just because it's a little sad. That being said, it's still a great way for tourists and longtime residents alike to view popular neighborhoods like the Village and Soho in a completely different light. My personal favorite point was seeing the original site of the Whitney Museum."
