NYC History and Entertainment!!

In preparation for my upcoming trip to NYC (my first time there), I’ve been listening to The Bowery Boys to help me get s feeling for the history of the city. I’ve found the podcasts informational and entertaining. Thank you Greg and Tom for putting this entertaining resource out.

Ridiculous

After the 15+ years of “living” in NYC, these two sound more like tour guides than guys from the 5 Burroughs.

Love the stories!

My father’s family emigrated to New York City back in the late 1800s and early 1900s. These historical accounts give me a glimpse of their world back then.
