Hi, I’m Phil, licensed to be a tourist guide by the City of New York and a member of the Guides Association of New York City (GANYC). I began Walk About New York to share my passion for the Big Apple with tourists and locals alike. You do not need to be an out-of-towner to enjoy the sights and stories that I will share with you. My walking tours offer something for everyone!
I wanted to live in Greenwich Village since a very young age. For 40 years I have lived, loved, laughed, and learned in this vibrant and colorful neighborhood! I like the Village because of its small-town atmosphere in a big city. With its irregular street plan, named streets, easy charm and human scale I find The Village comforting. After taking the Greenwich Village Walking Tour you will fall in love with it too!
Please allow me to share with you New York City, the place that I call home. During all my tours, I will connect the sights with fun facts and fascinating tales, helping to create for you a rich experience of New York. I’m a good photographer, too; I can help you take memorable photographs of your visit to the Big Apple that you will want to share with others.
I have developed and lead the Gay Graves Tour
at Green-Wood Cemetery, a National Historic
Landmark in Brooklyn.
Come along, let’s talk about and walk about New York.

Phil is a terrific guide! I live in NYC and his tours have made me see NYC is a whole new way. I have taken his tour of Greenwich Village and Five Squares and a Circle. Tomorrow, I am taking his tour of Central Park. I am sure it will be as excellent as his other tours.
Great website. Wish you the best of luck with your great tour packages. We are ure your tours will be rewarding for everyone.
