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

When people think of street art in NYC, they think of Brooklyn or the Lower East Side. But western Queens has a growing art scene that shouldn't be missed. From the artist haven of Long Island City to the Socrates Sculpture Park and the Welling Court Murals, there is so much to see. On this tour, we will explore the Queens waterfront, exploring all of the great art the area has to offer. We will start in Long Island City, where street artists are working around the area's growing gentrification. Next, we venture to Gantry State Park, which offers some of the best views in the city. From there, we will travel up by ferry to west Astoria, which boasts one of the city's fastest-growing street art scenes... specifically, the popular Welling Court Murals. This is a great tour for urban explores, artists, and photographers.
