 Big Apple Greeter: Choose your Hood

Pick your neighbourhood (Soho, Chinatown or Staten Island, for example) and take a free stroll with a resident New Yorker Big Apple Greeter. This non-profit organization began in 1992 and now has about 300 volunteers who will welcome visitors in up to 22 languages. A walk around Coney Island, for instance, could reveal such hidden delights as the world famous Nathan’s hot dog stand or the Brooklyn Baseball Gallery. Try to arrange a month in advance and bring your walking shoes. The greeters are enthusiastic and indefatigable. No tipping but the organization does accept donations.
