Jared was the penultimate guide! He planned our tour with our wishes in mind, and it couldn't have gone smoother! We had 4 teenagers in our group, and they couldn't say enough good things about the tour. He really made it enjoyable for all of us, and we learned so much about the city. It was worth every penny to... More

We wanted a tour focused on the 9/11 Memorial, the events of 9/11 and the history of the World Trade Center area. Jared did an excellent job. He was highly knowledgeable and peppered the tour with plenty of anecdotes about specific individuals - he made the history live. And although much of the subject matter was inevitably quite grim, he... More

We had 12 people with a four hour window from the end of our cruise to check in time for our flights home. I arranged for Jared to meet us at the pier. He even coordinated with the mini-bus driver I had reserved to show us things we never would have seen on our own. It was a rainy day... More

Our group of three had 4 hours for a tour of NYC before catching a plane home. You would think this goal a bit optimistic, but Jared made it happen.

I went to NYC with my 2 teenagers (14 & 16) who are obsessed with Hamilton. Jared made a tour tailored for us that took us to many Hamilton sites in the city. We saw his bank, site of one of his homes, grave stone, his church and others. Jared did a great job with those places and we were... More

What a pleasure that Hamilton's NYC Tour was! We choose from options that could take two to eight hours, going by foot, subway, or with a driver to Uptown, Lower Manhattan, Greenwich Village, even cities in New Jersey. It was wonderful participating in your family's love of history. I hope I helped make your private, custom tour an experience to... More

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
