About Your Host

Jeremy Wilcox is a licensed tour guide through the NYC Dept of Consumer Affairs, and a lifelong New Yorker. He specializes in off-the-beaten-path walking tours for those looking for the oft-missed parts of New York City. Whether you've only been here once, or a dozen times, there are countless of amazing sites and neighbors to explore for the first time. Even most New Yorkers do not get around to seeing them all. My goal is to help you discover these hidden treasures, from the perspective of an enthusiastic veteran.

What we'll do

Central Park is the most famous urban park in the world, and this small-group tour will help you discover why. From the sweeping Central Park Mall to the Bow Bridge to Strawberry Fields to the gorgeous Bethesda Terrace, your guide will make sure you get to see all of the highlights of this expansive park. Along the way, you'll learn the fascinating history of Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux's urban masterpiece. Central Park has been called “one of the greatest works of art in America”. Come see why! Your walking tour will start at Manhattan's Grand Army Plaza and continue on through the park. Your guide will show you all the highlights of the park at a leisurely pace. This tour takes place year round, as each season is a different experience. The best thing about this park is that every month brings changes and new discoveries. Central Park sites you may see include: Grand Army Plaza, The Pond, Gapstow Bridge, the Central Park Zoo, Delacorte Clock, The Dairy, Literary Walk, The Mall, the Bandshell, the landmarked Bethesda Terrace, the lake and Boathouse, the Ramble, Bow Bridge, Cherry Hill, and Strawberry Fields... in addition to beautiful historic and modern buildings around the park! As you walk, the tour guide will point out the highlights of the park (from the well-known to the smaller secrets), take your questions, and show you the best photo spots. You will never see New York the same way again! The tour will end in the beautiful Upper West Side neighborhood.
