Discover New York that tourists don't usually get to see. The tour starts in one of the oldest bars in New York famed by its literary history. A Prohibition-era speakeasy, it stayed open despite the law and survived in its original form. We'll take a walk along the path not usually visited by tourists where we'll see a private park and facades of private clubs. We'll get to a vantage point from which we'll be able to see some of New York's most fascinating buildings. I’ll share some of my favorite New York tales filled with daring, ambition, movie characters, love, murder, Prohibition, and ladies' skirts. We'll finish our journey in one of the city's most elegant Prohibition-style parlor where exquisite whiskey cocktail and sounds of jazz will make you feel like a Great Gatsby.
