This is a wonderful organization. They match visitors to NYC with residents who then take the visitors out on a walking tour of the City. The tour generally covers the Greeters favorite spots, often off the beaten track. It is a great people to people program and humanizes the visitors NYC experience.

A was born and grew up in Brooklyn eventually getting a free education at Stuyvesant HS and an engineering degree at CCNY. I owe much to this great city and giving back by sharing it with visitors has been a true pleasure. Big Apple Greeter connects me to visitors from every corner of the globe. They employ both internet technology and person to person contact to make it all happen. I hope this valuable organization does not fall victim to the cut backs during this recession. It would be a shame.
