My name is David Kenan. I have lived and worked in NYC for the last 48 years but I am originally from Israel. In my youth I was a store owner. After moving to Manhattan I became a real estate broker. 23 years ago I took a sightseeing job in Gray Line NY and worked there until last July. My job was to give comprehensive tours to tourists from all over the world. I love to show this city that I am passionate about and to lecture about its history and beautiful architecture. I am now interested in doing walking tours for small groups. That's why I signed up with Local Expeditions.
