OFFERING TOURS ANYWHERE IS A PLEASURE. IN THIS GREAT CITY IT IS AN HONOR.
The fun of any class, lecture or tour is in the discovery, in the why and the how. Why, for example, is local wealth concentrated along Fifth Ave. while gas stations and factories have always been close to the water? How does Central Park make economic sense on an island where real estate is the world's most valuable? Why does the world trade in Manhattan more than anywhere else?
Our purpose in these presentations is not to fill the bucket but to light the fire, not to fill minds but to get about a six inches of air in between your feet and the ground. Maybe that happens now and then.
