Jenn is passionate about Central Park and has a wealth of knowledge - from the history to the landscape to the social movements that shaped certain areas of the park. I can’t wait to go on another tour of the Northern section! Highly recommend this tour for New Yorkers as well, I had been to the park so many times without understanding more about it.

Jennifer is the encyclopedia of Olmsted. She knows this famous landscape architect as well as she know Central Park itself. Do yourself a favor and take one of her tours as soon as you can. Jennifer will make you feel like an old friend and you will come away with more than you imagined you would about this absolutely beautiful, historic jewel in NYC.

WOW! Outstanding experience! This is the real deal! I highly recommend everyone to tour Central Park with Jennifer! She will probably be the president of the Park one day! If someone could bottle her talents & distribute, they’d make millions!

Jennifer was so much fun to tour with! She took her time through the park, stopped for pictures and questions! We were sad to part ways at the end!

I can’t say enough great things about Jennifer. It was just my friends & I on the tour, and she accommodated us and made our time so personal! She is in love with Central Park & it truly shows in all she says about it! She was so informative & showed and told new things about the park I’d never learned on previous tours I’ve done. We wished we could have kept her for our entire visit to the city! Would love to schedule with her if I’m ever in NY again.
