FROM New York, NY
Alan Cohen is passionate about New York City. Diverse neighborhoods, the food, public art, architecture, and cultural institutions are sources of endless delight and fascination for this native of Brooklyn and Manhattan resident. Walk almost anywhere and there are layers of history in front of you, if you know how to see what's there. Alan, a former psychologist and college professor, has been exploring those layers most of his adult life. For fun, he started giving tours of his favorite places to friends. He became a tour guide for the Central Park Conservancy and a licensed New York City sightseeing guide because he loves to share New York¹s beauty and its stories. Photo ops of New York iconic landmarks are fine. It's even more rewarding to know the stories behind them. Take a walk with Alan and learn why New York is the world’s most interesting city.
