I'm a professionally licensed New York City tour guide. I lived in New York City for over 49 years. This city's cultural diversity and boundless energy has always set it apart from other metropolises. It's the reasons I fell in love with this city and wanted to become a tour guide. One of my goals is to help visitors have the best vacation possible.
This tour starts across from the Oculus. It's a $4 billion transit hub located within the World Trade Center Complex. We'll visit the North Cove where the largest rescue by sea transpired. Where over 500,000 people were evacuated from Lower Manhattan during September 11, 2001. The tour ends inside the Memorial Plaza's reflecting pools.
