What you'll do
We’ll meet at Port Authority and travel to the Weehawken area of NJ. We will go there like most locals do, on the bus through the Lincoln Tunnel, and see the stunning panoramic view of Manhattan from the George Washington Bridge to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It's a 15-minute bus ride. I've lived both in Manhattan and this North NJ area, and do this commute daily. We will discuss some of the most famous buildings in the Manhattan skyline and take great photos. Then we will take a ferry crossing the Hudson River back to Midtown Manhattan (around 42nd St). It will be interactive, fun and a unique way to experience NYC. Please be aware there's a 20-minute walk to the ferry on way back to Manhattan. It will be mostly alongside the Hudson River but to get there there's a 5-story set of stairs.
I'm culture curious. I've been exploring food, drinks, music, and dances from all over the world over the past decade. I'm Caribbean born, I'm a culture blogger, travel enthusiast and travel gear designer. I've also been an actor. You may have seen me in TV shows and movies filmed in NYC, such Law & Order: SVU, Blue Bloods, Bull or Luke Cage.

Where you'll be
We will be in Weehawken and Edgewater, NJ. Right across the Hudson River, less than 25 minutes from Midtown Manhattan. The best vantage point to see the Manhattan skyline and take great photos of NYC. We will then walk to the Ferry terminal in Edgewater to take the NY Waterways back to Manhattan.
