I am a Native New Yorker. I grew up in the Bronx and went to school in Manhattan so I started commuting at a very young age as most New York City kids do. I grew up on the New York City subway system and can tell you how to get anywhere in the city quickly, safely, and with ease. From my travels around the world, I know how vulnerable one can feel in a foreign land and as a New Yorker, I know how intimidating this city can be to visitors. I'm here to make your stay that much smoother with tips and information I've learned from my years navigating this city's bustling underground world.
