Style: Offbeat

We trace the dramatic transformation of "The Deuce" -- 42nd Street -- from the gritty vestiges of its west end, through Broadway, Bryant Park, the Library, to Grand Central Terminal and the major project next door that was done by our own U.S. President.
--> We meet on the west side of 8th Avenue, between 44th and 45th Streets, in front of the ROW Hotel.

Your Insider

Born in the Bronx, I've been dazzled by this City since my parents used to take me everywhere from the Lower East Side kosher restaurants to the Statue of Liberty (a landmark very few New Yorkers actually visit). And as a newspaper reporter, publisher of a community newspaper, and former real estate agent, I use all my experience to explore, investigate and understand the workings of this dynamic City. As an NYC-licensed Tour Guide, I've worked on a double-decker bus for 3 years, and I'd like to share with you what I've learned and show you many secrets and oddities most people don't know about and rarely even notice.
