New York City Advice for Visitors
I'll make a list of things to do based and resources based on your interests as well as answer any questions you have about visiting NYC.
While there are plenty of tourists guides, I can be a supplement to them and make suggestions that you might not find elsewhere. New York City can be a fun place to visit but can also seem intimidating and overwhelming. It's one of the safest big cities in the world, but you still need to be careful. I can also advise on free things to do, safety concerns of various neighborhoods, how to get around, where to eat, where to drink, nightlight and other resources to explore your interests.
I am particularly knowledgeable in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, books, arts & culture, alternative culture, entertainment, comics and restaurants. I'm open to helping with anything you want to know about NYC or can direct you to where you can find more information.
Training & Qualifications
I've been living in NYC since 2006 and have lived in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens. I have visited many of the neighborhoods and been to too many bars, museums, galleries, comic shops, restaurants, libraries and clubs to remember. I've also taken classes / visited or been to lectures at most of the universities in the areas.

I'll make time.
