Jennifer was passionate about the park and I left feeling the same way! She managed to creat the perfect tour after a short beginning conversation. Giving us the excitement of the well known spots and also showing us hidden corners of the park, Jennifer showed us the true value and magic of Central Park!

Jennifer was a fantastic tour guide. My parents and I had a great time on the tour, which was personalized, at a good pace, and informative. She really opened our eyes to the wonder of Central Park and all of the hidden gems within! Her tour is perfect for those new to New York but also wonderful for locals who have “done it all” and want to do something a little different where they can learn all about their own backyard. Thanks Jennifer!

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.
