Together with a licensed New York City guide, in your language, you'll tour New York with a focus on innovation. Concepts such as Air Rights, how our subway system has the most firsts and unique features, skyscraper construction, "fast track", how did we get the smallest CO2 footprint, our water is so pure that the Federal EPA exempts us from filtering it, but we do so anyway, pocket parks, crime reductions so huge that the FBI has rated us the safest large city in The United States.

Our street grid raises the bar, streets are flat, numbered and the blocks are short, why? Because the more blocks you have the more corners you get and they're worth more $$$! How did John Jacob Astor become the first self-made millionaire in America? What was Cornelius Vanderbilt's innovation that propelled him to be the wealthiest man in America.

Who invented the idea of department store returns, exchanges and more? Why did Olmstead and Vaux win the right to build Central Park they way they designed it? What were their innovations? We explore these and other places that illustrate such brilliance. We discuss and exchange ideas that will stimulate you and provide a rich and fascinating view of this great city. Join us for a most memorable experience!

Notes:
The tour cost is based on your choice of vehicle and length of time that you wish to tour. For example, a chauffeured SUV with an NYC licensed guide, in English, is $195 per hour and accommodates 5 guests. A luxury van is $265 @ hour and accommodates 12 people.
