We’ll also see:
• Beautiful bridges that shattered records
• Amazing architecture, from traditional and classic to stunningly modern
• See wonderful public art. Sculptures and murals that range from classic
& inspiring to playful & fun
• Enjoy parks and atriums that most tourists, even locals, have never seen

I am a retired civil engineer that has designed and inspected bridges for over 25 years. I have worked on projects involving many of the major bridges and tunnels of NYC.

I’ve climbed around, in and under some of NY’s most important structures as I’ve analyzed, rated and rehabilitated them.

I have learned of the incredible human stories behind them; the fierce ambitions, triumphs, tragedies and quirks.

I’ve also come to love the great art of the city; from the museums and galleries to the public squares and walls; from the classic and inspiring to the whimsical and fun. Great art that is often right next to the structures we’ll be seeing!

In my journeys around the city I've found many hidden gems that few tourists ever see. Lovely little parks, atriums, public art & lobbies.

I love New York City!! Let me share it with you!

We’ll walk around lower Manhattan. Starting near The World Trade Center, we'll walk along the Hudson River on the Battery Park Esplanade, over to Broadway, down Wall Street and finish near South Street Seaport with its gorgeous up close views of three major bridges. We'll chat about NJ's vibrant skyline of its own including, NJ's two tallest skyscrapers. We'll see Trinity Church, NY Stock Exchange and much more

This was a wonderful tour. We saw many new things that I don’t believe we would ever have found otherwise. John’s style is laidback and welcoming. He is a great storyteller. He clearly has a deep expertise and enjoys doing this.

John is an amazing storyteller and so kind! Even before the experience he messaged me with some tips for my trip! He knows the city by heart and he has worked in some of the most reinventing buildings as bridges as a civil engineer so he knows a lot about them! He’s super thoughtful and nice and takes you to a lot of hidden gems, artsy spots and important places!! If you are thinking about it, this is your sign: Book now!!!

We enjoyed the tour very much. John is incredibly knowledgeable and generous with his time. We covered a lot of ground and learned a lot about the buildings, bridges and history of lower Manhattan.

Though it was only two of us, John came and gave us a great tour of downtown Manhattan. He has knowledge, grace, humor and he delivers a wonderful narrative. Though we were familiar with the area, John was able to point our gaze from the small details (Tom Otterness Real World's sculptures) to the big ones (a very interesting overview of the bridges, with just the right amount of technical details mixed in). We will certainly recommend John's tour to our friends and call him again next time we are in NYC, for a new tour in a different part of town! THANKS JOHN!
