The tour guide did the impossible: she kept a long (3 hours) tour interesting enough to stick w/ it in the horrible heat of last week (temps in the upper 90s). The ONLY suggestion I can think to make is to change the name of the tour to something like Africans in Early NYC. But it was so much fun & I went to places that I've never been to...and I live here! I highly recommend it.
