Founder, Local Expeditions
FROM Brooklyn, NY
Nancy Blaine has been a resident of New York City since 1983. In that time she has lived in Harlem, The East Village, the West Village, Soho and Park Slope. In that time she has worked in mid-town, Union Square, Madison Square Park, and near the Empire State Building. She is a daily bicycle commuter who has seen almost all of the sights that Manhattan and Brooklyn have to offer. In her long term career in higher ed publishing she has acquired texts in various disciplines including, History, Criminal Justice, English, Anthropology and Engineering. This has made her a life-long learner and traveler which, in turn, provided the true inspiration for Local Expeditions. Nancy has also been lucky enough to have a home in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire since 1995. Ask her about custom hiking and boat tours.
