What you'll do

Do you love art? What about architecture? Would you like to see New York through a different lens? Join me to explore my favorite city and share its idiosyncrasies and treasures. We will walk in the historic neighborhood of SOHO and Tribeca to see the places where minimalists and abstract expressions artists have started their careers. We will "shop" architecture designs and create our own buildings. We will see contemporary design through graffiti and murals. On the way you will hear stories about the artists, their lives and deaths, visit art organisations and secret museums.
Fake facades, murder stories, hidden treasures and my passion for New York and art might convert you to become an artist and move to New York :)

Let's explore these artistic wonders together! You will see this metropolis through the eyes of an artist with all its colors and treasures. You will walk away with an insiders point of view of the area and many ideas on what to visit next.

New York is a wonderful place for arts and I would like to share lots of arts with you. I am obsessed with art. I see, breath, make, create art! Born into the family of artists and have been an artist most of my life.
For the past eight years I have been learning and researching art history and especially related to this incredible city. Let me guide you towards new discoveries of art and New York!

I wanted a personal experience in this neighborhood for my family and me in NYC visiting on a holiday weekend. Anna made us feel welcome, and shared her passion and knowledge of the architecture, art, and neighborhood. I could not have done this on my own. It was special and memorable. It was the perfect day of the week and perfect time of day to do this tour-Sunday morning. She taught us something new! Be ready to walk a total of about 3 miles. Heed the suggestion to bring water. We had a great time. TYSM, Anna!
