After some unexpected delays, I am delighted to re-launch Eye Prefer New York Tours. After 3 years of leading hundreds of Eye Prefer Paris Tours I have decided to also share my special New York, my birthplace and my home before I moved to Paris five years ago. My good friend Laurence Waltman will be leading the tours. Living in New York for over 30 years, Laurence was a creative director in the advertising business for many years and is now an actor. He's all around fun guy and his easygoing manner and expert knowledge of everything New York will make your Eye Prefer New York Tour an unforgettable experience. Eye Prefer New York Tours will focus on 3 unique downtown neighborhoods Meatpacking district and West Village, Tribeca, and Soho. Just like my Pairs tours, clients will experience unique and out of the way shops, important architecture, specialty food stores, and museums & galleries of New York. Here are just a few truly New York things clients will discover:
- New York City’s newest, scenic park, built on an abandoned, elevated railroad track, featuring magnificent views of the Hudson River
- Designer bargains at NY’s headquarters for discounted Fashion, Accessories and Shoes
- A specialty Food Market featuring fresh-caught seafood and lobster, customized cookies and decadent brownies, and award-winning local cheese and wine. Also visit the premier source for professional restaurant and cooking supplies in the city
- Tree-lined rows of land-marked 1930’s red brick townhouses and historic Italianate brownstones from the 1860′s
- The epicenter of international contemporary furniture and design
Tours cost $195 for three hours for up to 3 people and $65 for each additional person. Laurence looks forward to meeting you so you can take a bite out of the Big Apple you will never forget!
