Overview

Discover the magnificent and richly historic Brownstone Brooklyn (or Greenwich Village or midtown Manhattan). I'm a New York City licensed tour guide (I'm on the Dept. of Consumer Affairs list with a star) who conducts private tours of NYC culture and history, and the current scene. My tours also incorporate my 30+ years of experience promoting the arts in New York: Broadway, music, dance, films and visual arts, with many "insider" stories.

Reva is a fine tour guide. The tour included several neighborhoods, subway rides, and a morning of strolling. Reva is a treasure of knowledge on the history, art and literature of the area. It was definitely a tour I would highly recommend.
