(104)

Real New York Tours is proud to be a small business. Owners Luke and Amber Miller have been providing service and creating friendships that cannot be matched by any large-scale corporate tours. We feel that the best way to experience the greatest city in the world is hanging out with someone who's knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. Our guides meet and exceed all criteria and will go above and beyond to provide you with an experience that cannot be achieved by sitting on a bus with dozens of other people. After a Real New York Tour, you'll leave the city with good memories, great photos, interesting knowledge, and of course, new friends. We look forward to meeting you and showing you REAL New York! -- Luke & Amber Miller

Mission: Lets face it, New York tours are only as good as their tour guides. Real New York Tours gives people the opportunity to see the city through the eyes of real New Yorkers. Real New York Tours explores the history, the cracks and crevices, the side streets, and culture of real New York City neighborhoods. No double decker buses or sitting in a traffic jam. We’ll ride the New York subway, pound the pavement, and meet the people who have become the fabric of this great city. Together we will feel the electricity that drives everyday New Yorkers.

Still breaks my heart even 40 years later. John Lennon and The Beatles live on in our household. I sometimes meet kids on my tours who are not familiar with The Beatles. I immediately look at their parents and consider whether to call child protective services.😀

Real New York Tours meets Russian News

It's never a dull moment in the tourism industry. Recieved a text from a guy named Dimitry asking me to be on Russian news for a piece on Covid and toursim in NYC. They gave me a 2 hour notice. Usually i do a little research on requests for media but these days i'll take the free advertising anywhere i can. It's all in Russian by the way. They asked me when i thought everything in NYC would get back to normal. As if i would know? I jokingly said i was good friends with Dr. Fauci and we've discussed it. Not sure if they got my humor. They eventually just cut me off.

Hey Everyone, hope you are well. We have recently taken some promo shots for our Zoom Tours we are now offerring. We have narrowed it down to these two and Amber and I have opposing opinions. We need you guys to settle it. If you have a moment you can reply "Street Shot" or "Mural Shot." We can always photo shop in smiles on the guides that are lacking them so just think about which is the most genuine, natural, impactful, shot. Appreciate you settling our family disputes! Lol!!

Central Park is unveiling a statue of women's rights pioneers. It's the park's first statue of real women

For years I’ve been astounded that a city as progressive as NYC only has five statues of influential, female historic figures. Was so glad to read this article today.

#realnewyorktours #newyorkcity #influentialwomen #nycstatues
#nycwalkingtours

https://www.cnn.com/style/article/central-park-womens-rights-statue/index.html

New York's Central Park is set to unveil a statue of women's rights suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Sojourner Truth -- marking the park's first statue of real women.

RIP Pete Hamill. Thank you for all the inspiration.

“The wanderer in Manhattan must go forth with a certain innocence, because New York is best seen with innocent eyes. It doesn't matter if you are younger or old. Reading our rich history makes the experience more layered, but it is not a substitute for walking the streets themselves. For old-timer or newcomer, it is essential to absorb the city as it is now in order to shape your own nostalgias.
That's why I always urge the newcomer to surrender to the city's magic. Forget the irritations and the occasional rudeness; they bother New Yorkers too. Instead, go down to the North River and the benches that run along the west side of Battery Park City. Watch the tides or the blocks of ice in winter; they have existed since the time when the island was empty of man. Gaze at the boats. Look across the water at the Statue of Liberty or Ellis Island, the place to which so many of the New York tribe came in order to truly live. Learn the tale of our tribe, because it's your tribe too, no matter where you were born. Listen to its music and its legends. Gaze at its ruins and monuments. Walk its sidewalks and run fingers upon the stone and bricks and steel of our right-angled streets. Breathe the air of the river breeze."

Beautiful New York moment shared by our long time friend and tour guide Trey Gibbons.
#realnewyorktours #iloveny

“This afternoon in Central Park, an elderly lady was dropped off by what I assume was her home health aide. She asked the man seated on the bench, "What time would you like for me to pick her up?"
"Oh, maybe two hours." He paused briefly, looking at the wheelchair-bound lady in front of him. "Let's say three hours."
As the attendant walked away, the man removed his mask, unfolded a copy of the New York Times, and began to read aloud to his friend.
This is the kind of New York moment I missed during quarantine.”

New York City reports zero COVID-19 deaths for first time since pandemic hit

A post from our guide and dear friend Trey Gibbons.

“Stay diligent, my fellow New Yorkers. Don't get sloppy. The personal, social, and financial sacrifices we made over the past four months are paying off.
We did this together, you beautiful people.
WE. DID. THIS. TOGETHER.”

New York City on Sunday reported zero new coronavirus deaths for the first time since early March, a milestone that comes as the virus spikes in other parts of the country.

Hey Luke! I was reading LI and noticed this post - I believe you showed us this piece of property on our tour! In the 1910s, the city of New York demolished the apartment building David Hess owned to extend a major thoroughfare. But the city didn’t seize the entirety of his land—and he wasn’t about to give it up lightly. —

A slight warning for anyone visiting NYC: the double decker sightseeing bus tour company TOPVIEW SIGHTSEEING is a scam bus company 😞 I got robbed by them last week and in my research I’m not the only one. 100’s of others got scammed too with no refunds given. Here’s a video of how they do it now. It’s new. They deactivate your tickets in their app after you purchase and then deny you access on their busses. Their busses only show up once in a while too, if you’re lucky.
Denmark couple. I LOVE my job! ♥️🗽🏙️
