Need a Break? Or Want to Learn about NYC History? Watch our Virtual Tours

If you need a break, and want to take a virtual tour of New York City. We’re thrilled that our “Tourist in Your Own Town” videos are reaching New York City fans around the globe, and contributing to homeschooling.

We’re reaching viewers in France, Israel, Canada, Peru, the United Kingdom, Denmark and throughout the States. One of them sent this message: “I am a proud American living in Israel who is addicted to New York. I so enjoy this video series. I have been to most of the places shown and hope there will soon be a video on the Olmsted House in Staten Island.”

The fourth grade class at Muscota New School, P.S. 314 in Inwood was assigned our Fraunces Tavern video as part of their Revolutionary War studies. We are proud to be included and hope other videos will be useful to teachers.

Watch Our Videos

We have tripled average daily viewership recently. That’s adding to the 250,000 views recorded before the videos were promoted as ways to virtually enjoy New York while at home. Thank you to Curbed NY, Time Out New York, NYC & Company, Canada’s Travel Pulse, and Indian Express Indulge magazine for featuring our 61 tours of famous, and should be famous, historic sites throughout the five boroughs. Hamilton Grange, Alexander Hamilton’s summer home, topped the list in the most recent report.

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. Best wishes from all of us.
