I love it when guests on tours want to customize on the fly.
I was doing a Lower East Side Heritage tour for two women who wanted to shop at fabric stores after our tour.
We went to the Lower East Side Business Improvement District's Visitor's Center and they marked up a map for them.
The next visitors on my Greenwich Village Tour* were interested in post-WW2 counter-culture and music. We went to Bleecker Street, then Jones Street for a "Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" portrait,
Matt Umanov Guitars, William Kunstler's Center for Constitutional Rights on Gay St, and great bars of Christopher St., Washington Sq Park, MacDougal St, where the Weathermen accidentally bombed themselves, the old Women's House of Detention, which had political prisoners...
I did this Greenwich Village tour through NYC Urban Adventures. If you have fewer than five people along, it is a good value compared to my private tours. Please remember to request me, Jared the Tour Guide!
