Great podcast

Great podcast about unique aspects of NYC. Definitely worth the time and you can’t help but learn something new.The narrator has a soothing voice as well, a bonus!

Great Information But Too Slow

This is a great podcast with good information and detail; however, the narrative is told incredibly slow. I have to take the episodes in sections otherwise I zone out missing half of what was said. A tone much like a professor that has taught the same subject for far longer than he/she should have. The research is there but relayed in a blasé fashion. So much potential though!
