Vad du kommer att göra

Step into the shoes of an NYC "techie". Join me for an overview of NYC's tech industry as we walk along the 1.5 mile, elevated High Line Park through two of the major neighborhoods Big Tech calls home: Chelsea and Hudson Yards.

From seeing landmark office buildings where companies including Google, Facebook, and Amazon are clustered, to discussing the history of the High Line dating back to the industrial revolution, or just enjoying the scenic commute like the locals do, you'll learn how to spot a techie and how to break into the industry yourself. We will also chat about the impact of the work-from-home trend on the local economy.

Our journey begins nearby Google's 4-block mega complex, and ends in the courtyard outside Amazon's office – steps from Whole Foods for a healthy lunch, and just a few blocks from Penn Station and other iconic New York experiences if you plan to continue exploring the city!

I am a licensed NYC tour guide and have worked in the NYC tech industry for 5+ years.

I've spent my career working at VC-backed software businesses, and also at a tech-focused recruitment firm.

During my time in recruiting, I made hundreds of connections with employees at companies in NYC including Google, LinkedIn, Uber, and Amazon just to name a few - and I had the pleasure of visiting many of their offices in New York.

I'm also passionate about history and can't wait to share the story of the NYC tech industry with you - from the industrial revolution, to the dot com bubble, to today!

I've walked the High Line dozens of times but never knew the history behind its past and ongoing development, this tour gave me insights that I wouldn’t have discovered on my own. Joe is professional, knowledgeable, and super friendly -- great guy to know if you're looking to break into the NYC tech scene.  Even if you're not into tech, this is an engaging tour to learn about the history and real estate development of the area. 5 stars.

Joe is such a great tour guide. I enjoyed this experience so much! I appreciated all the insights into the current tech space while weaving in a great balance of history, real estate, and current events. A classic Highline tour with a bit of a twist, if you will! Calling all Highline and Hudson Yards enthusiasts--this is the tour for you. You will not be bored. To all tourists new to New York--you won't want to miss out on this experience if you want to get a taste of the neighborhood New Yorker life.

Phenomenal tour highlighting the growth and rapid changes in the NYC tech ecosystem. The guide was informed and thoughtful, providing unique and interesting details about the strategy, hiring practices, and development of companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Google in NYC. Highly recommend the tour for anyone in the New York tech community or visitors to the city who want a fantastic overview of multiple neighborhoods.
