I am Andrea Kropman, Uruguayan by birth and currently residing in New York. I studied Social Communication in Uruguay, and in Spain I worked for 15 years as Coordinator of Digital Communication. In 2010, I started with the project "Jane's Walks" in Madrid, an international initiative that pays tribute to Jane Jacobs. In recent years I alternated my work as a communicator with the design of tours of the cities I lived in: Madrid, Barcelona and London. Upon arriving in NYC, I became an Official Tourism Guide. You will find me guiding tours of various walking tour agencies and you can check the quality of my work through the opinions of other people who enjoyed my tours. As an inhabitant and migrant from different cities, I have a social and global vision that will provide you with daily information and reveal unknown data.

About the tour

Where is the ride? On this walk, we will see buildings. Midtown in Manhattan NYC, is the area with the highest density of skyscrapers. Each of these giant structures has many hidden stories and anecdotes. You cannot come to New York and not know them. The architects, responsible for the design of the New York skyline, suffered a very common obsession in humans, reaching the sky. This became a competition between several of them.

At the same time, the workers are the ones who really reached the skies, working at the same time that they balanced the beams hundreds of meters from the ground.

What will the tour be like?

The itinerary consists of 10 stops with a duration of 3 hours. I will guide you through the most populous streets of Manhattan, we will have to be aware at all times that we are a group and that we are going to have fun knowing the curious tales that made Manhattan an elevated metropolis. What will we see? The interiors of the Grand Central Terminal; the Chrysler, Empire State, Radiator, New York Public Library, Paramount Building, Times Tower, Rockefeller Center buildings; the districts of the Theater and Diamond, and we finish in the beautiful Cathedral of San Patricio.
