Walking Tour Guides in New York City offer insight into the city for tourists and city inhabitants alike. Expose yourself to something new with a New York City walking tour with The Street Teacher.
The streets of New York City are a familiar sight to people all over the world, through television, films, and other widespread forms of media. Locals may know the streets and avenues as well as the back of their hand, but when it comes to the historical foundation of the neighborhoods that they love and inhabit, what do they really know about New York City?
The Street Teacher, also known as Bill Goodhart, is a licensed New York City Tour Guide, and he goes beyond just simply showing folks the sights in New York City. During each tour, Goodhart works to educate and entertain equally, teaching the deep rooted history of neighborhoods throughout Manhattan. Take a walking tour through Greenwich Village and learn about the tobacco-profiteering Dutch aristocracy of New York, or hear the tale of how Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange were founded.
Moreover, Bill takes a unique approach in teaching the rich historical background of New York City through walking tours, by relating issues of the past to current issues, and previous politics that impact the world today. During The Street Teacher’s Upper East Side walking tours, Goodhart delights visitors with his tales of historical landmarks from the time of New Amsterdam, times that helped forge the path for current events and hot topics today, such as the Affordable Care Act.
Through understanding the connection between past and present, attendees of Bill’s walking tours feel a deeper affinity than ever to the old streets of Manhattan and the layers of history beneath their feet. When taking walking tours with The Street Teacher, visitors will do more than feast their eyes on the sights on New York – they’ll feast their minds, as well.
