Why did I become a tour guide? Well, I’m not from New York ( or any other place in the US for that matter) I came here few years ago from Florence, Italy as tourist myself and then fell in love with this vibrant city (and not only the city…) and decided to stay. I was struck also by the amazing architecture, I’m very passionate about Art Deco and New York is the “Mecca” of this exciting and elegant style . I discovered then so many more aspect to this city that I used to know and that usually people who don’t live here , really know. Few years ago I felt the need to share all my knowledge about New York as an “insider” who also still has a tourist point of you, so that people that are visiting the city can appreciate a little bit more of the “real” Big Apple and the incredible energy that it transmits through its people. So I decided to become a New York City Licensed Sightseeing Guide and start this new adventure. I’m convinced that there isn’t a tour more interesting than another, there isn’t a “One Fits All” solution. Each one of us has different interests and needs , therefore a tailored itinerary is always the best option. Your unforgettable journey in NYC starts from here…
Do you love street art or maybe just art in general?
Then Bushwick is perfect for you! This Brooklyn neighborhood is like an open-air museum, where you can admire, block by block, murals, rope bombs, small sculptures and graffiti.
This is really a special place that emerged at a very difficult time for this area, an industrial area where there are still manufacturers, warehouses, but also small businesses and residential buildings. In a few years it has been invaded by a multitude of colors and has become a mecca for artists and young people who today find a multitude of restaurants, bars and places to hang out.
Let's find out together! We will take the L subway from Union Square and it will take us about 20 minutes to arrive in this amazing neighborhood, which also gives you the opportunity to take lots of "Instagrammable" photos.
After a nice walk, we took the L-Line again to stop in Williamsburg , another Brooklyn neighborhood that has changed incredibly over the last 15 to 20 years and has become one of the coolest chapels in New York. Chosen by artists, designers and photographers who have chosen this setting for their studies. As we walk, we'll learn about Williamsburg's history , but we'll also see the many small shops (many of which sell Brooklyn handmade items), many restaurants, patisseries, and bars that come alive at night.
We will also visit the newly completed Domino Park , which was placed along the East River and from where we can enjoy the breathtaking view of the Manhattan skyline.
Meeting point: Open in Google Maps
How to find me: Outside the Jefferson St station of Subway L. Corner of Jefferson St and Whycoff Ave.

We had a great time with Alessia. Learned about the street art, history and foundation of the city, even under the rain. Thanks for the restaurant and bakery recommendations, we loved it!
