Bowery boys bring me home

Grew up Queens New York now in ft Wayne Indiana and listening to the Bowery boys brings my New York spirit to life and the knowledge I learn of things I never knew is absolutely fascinating . Thanks keep up the great work enjoy every episode.

Highly recommend!

I’ve listened to Bowery Boys for more than 5 or 6 years now, I think. I’m mesmerized by how much they know and how much I learn from them in every episode.

I live in NYC and purposely head to neighborhoods and spend a day meandering about, with my earbuds in, taking in the culture and history of this great city.

I recently started teaching an undergrad course in society and food cultures and have recommended this podcast to my students to help them broaden their understanding of the many immigrant populations that make up the varieties of neighborhoods in these five boroughs.

Thanks for all you do, guys!

Simply Fantastic

Found this podcast only recently...sad that I hadn’t found it earlier but super excited that I don’t have for new podcasts I can listen to all the past ones, one right after another!! I drive a lot for work it’s all I’ve been listening to for about a week now. Very informative and fun, as a native (Upstate) New Yorker it really peaks my interest to visit NYC more often and have a better knowledge of the history and stories of such an amazing city!
