Q&A with Rosalie Kenny, Volunteer/Board Member
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
Our primary guides, Kevin Walsh and Richard Melnick, are licensed New York City tour guides. As New York natives, they have been fascinated their whole lives by watching the city change and discovering and sharing its secrets.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
Arrive 10–15 minutes early, bring water, wear comfortable walking shoes. Occasionally we cover slightly rough terrain. Ask questions.
Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
The most enjoyable part of our walking tours is learning a new fact about a neighborhood you may have thought you knew well. I love hearing the whole group laugh or say "Ohhh" in response to our tour guides.
