I had a great time. Even though I live in New York I saw many places I hadn't known about. Ike Ilkiw, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable as well as friendly and interesting. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this tour a lot. Ike is very knowledgeable and extremely personable. This is not some college kid or out of work actor who was given a script to memorize. This is a former NYPD detective who knows this topic first hand. You even...continued
