I am a practicing civil engineer that has designed and inspected bridges for over 25 years. I have worked on projects involving many of the major bridges and tunnels of NYC.

I’ve climbed around, in and under some of NY’s most important structures as I’ve analyzed, rated and rehabilitated them.

I have learned of the incredible human stories behind them; the fierce ambitions, triumphs, tragedies and quirks.

I’ve also come to love the great art of the city; from the museums and galleries to the public squares and walls; from the classic and inspiring to the whimsical and fun. Great art that is often right next to the structures we’ll be seeing!

In my journeys around the city I've found many hidden gems that few tourists ever see. Lovely little parks, atriums, public art & lobbies.

I love New York City!! Let me share it with you!

I enjoyed the tour so much! John was so knowledgeable and professionally prepared. I’ve lived in New York for 9 years but I’ve learnt a lot of new today and saw some awesome spots I never saw before! Also I had a feeling like we were friends for a long time. This is so much more interesting then just walking around the city. It’s my new favorite way to explore the city. Thank you John for such an amazing experience!

I did three very different tours in different parts of NYC and they were all excellent, but this one was the best! This tour is packed with stunning art, architecture, history, culture, trivia, and the best of really old and really new NYC. It's three good hours of walking and covers a lot of ground but there's plenty of time for pics with many iconic views and landmarks, and also some special hidden gems. John has a wealth of knowledge and experience, connections and insight.

Amazing NYC tour! John is very knowleageable about NYC art, it's buidings and little parks and atriums. This is better than the expensive tours. Great value for the money. You will see many hidden NYC gems that other tours don't show you. I had a great experience and learn so much about NYC. Even local New Yorkers would benefit from this tour. The narration of the tour was excellent. I'm highly recommending this tour to my firends and others that visit NYC.

We had a great experience with John. He is an excellent guide and narrator, very knowledgeable and caring. We highly recommend it, for a first time visit to NYC as well as if you already know the city, you will re-discover it from a new perspective.

We thoroughly enjoyed this fabulous tour! John has lived in the area for years and knew all the buildings and addresses - there was not a question we asked he didn't know the answer to. The tour was a great mix of the buildings (for my civil engineer fiance) and art (for my creative sister) - both were very fascinated, and you don't need to have a baseline of knowledge of either topic to enjoy the tour. Even if you've been to New York many times before, you probably didn't know or haven't noticed everything he pointed out. We really can't recommend this tour enough! John even had recommendations on art exhibits & places to eat after. Thank you very much John, and everyone should go on his tour!!
