Hi! I'm a tour guide and Chief Experience Officer at Untapped New York and I will host your experience! I grew up in New York and always had a passion for NYC's diverse history which I have been excited to share with locals and visitors alike for the last few years. After writing several plays about New York, I decided to take the plays out of the theaters and directly into the streets... where the stories actually happened! I can't wait to share the city's secrets with you and show you its hidden gems!
