A review in TripAdvisor about our two days in NYC

Best way to explore NYC!
We spent a full day with Jared and had such a great time that we arranged another 2 hours the following day. We had a few specific things we wanted to see, but otherwise did a lot of ad hoc exploring, and Jared never missed a beat. Around every corner he had interesting stories to tell, and some of the places he took us wouldn't have even occurred to us to look for. Those ended up being some of the highlights of our trip!
All the great things other reviewers have said about Jared were absolutely true... knowledgeable, entertaining, patient, flexible, great with the kids, great photo suggestions. My kids say Jared is "funny and awesome," and the best part about touring with Jared was "everything!"
(This was a tour for 3 generations. We saw and did
Statue of Liberty
The Charging Bull
The Fearless Girl
World Trade Center.
We did not want to get too sad for the kids, so I helped develop the kids' interest in architectural photography, and they were quite good!
We took a local public bus through Chinatown to the Lower East Side
We experienced a local market and foodie destination Essex Market
Then and old fashion candy store, Economy.
Finally, Jewish Deli pastrami sandwiches and hot dogs at Katz'.
For my Command performance: I showed them my picture album of the Brooklyn Bridge, and then they toured it and took their own pictures and videos.
Then we went to the Flatiron Building, concluding at a Jewish soda shop from the 1920s, Eisenbergs.)
