Discover New York’s Hidden History That You Won’t Find Anywhere Else

Book a NYC Adventure with Host of Urbanist, Ariel Viera

Did you know there are statues of owls in front of Macy’s at Herald Square whose eyes glow green every night? Or if you take the 6 train beyond the final stop you can see an abandoned subway station that looks like a Gilded Age mansion? These are secrets of New York City that I love to share with the world via my show Urbanist.

Due to popular demand from my viewers, I’m bringing these secrets to in-person tours and private virtual tours!

I’m Ariel Viera, a lifelong local, and I’ve spent my entire life learning the hidden history of New York City.

On my tours you will experience these secrets of NYC that most tourists would never otherwise see and learn about places you won’t find in the guide books.
