My husband and I are native New Yorkers and somewhat familiar with the Lower East Side and its rich history. We decided to take the tour to fill in the gaps in our knowledge. We were not disappointed! Ben is a very engaging speaker and he shared many insights that we were not aware of. This was a very pleasant experience and we recommend it for both "locals" and tourists!

From Our Editors

Though impressively metropolitan in their own rights, with their powers combined, Ben Wagenberg and Marty Grabstein would be the ultimate New Yorker. They're both NYC natives, of course—Ben spent his college years memorizing Manhattan's streets as a cab driver, and Marty grew up working in his family's Brooklyn deli before becoming a stage actor who also picked up roles on shows such as Law and Order.

Today, they share their intimate knowledge of NYC with both locals and tourists with Ben and Marty's Bagel Tours of New York. Each tour starts out with New York's "most iconic food"—a hot, fresh bagel—before Ben or Marty escorts groups through various food- and culture-based explorations of Manhattan. The SOHO tour looks beyond the designer-label signage that dresses many of the 'hood's storefronts, and instead studies the cast-iron architecture behind it before stopping for coffee and dessert at an Italian café. The Grand Central Tour celebrates the 100th anniversary of one of America's most treasured landmarks, and in Gansevoort groups walk the High Line, an elevated-railway-turned-grassy-park, before visiting area meat markets. Clients can also choose to create a custom tour, requesting jaunts through Little Italy, Chinatown, or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' vacation sewer.
