About Tour Guide Jonathan G.

Hello there! I am Jonathan and I'm so excited to share my New York City with you!

I have family roots in New York City stretching back over a hundred years, mirroring the classic immigrant experience from Ellis Island to the Lower East Side. This background has inspired an ongoing quest for the best of the city past and present, from the suspension cables of the Brooklyn Bridge to the hot pastrami at Katz’s deli. I moved from the depths of Jersey to Manhattan’s Morningside Heights at 18 for college and have since split his time between Tel Aviv and New York City.

I studied American History at Columbia University under Kenneth Jackson, one of the all time great historians of New York City. After college I worked in finance before heading back to school in Israel to study for an MA in Archeology from Bar Ilan University.

I currently guide tours in both New York and Israel, depending on the season. I love exploring the city’s history, from the footprints of George Washington to Malcolm X, and discovering hidden gems from the best pizza slice to the coolest dive bar. New York City is an endless playground of culture, history, and energy where every day seems to yield a new adventure.
