Jack Eichenbaum's "Geography of NYC"
Jack's walking tours stress the historical geography of NYC, adapation to the physical landscape as well changes in technology and demography. Subways and bridges are often used within walks. More walking and more cityscape variation than most archtecturally based walks. Some perennnial favorites: "Where does Harlem Begin";"Long Island City 1,2,and 3"; "6 Walks from the #7 Train."

Fees: Vary. Sometimes free.
Phone: 718-961-8406
Notes: As a geographer, I know where to find the surviving links to history. Email for current schedule.
