How do you become a New Yorker? Can you claim this identity after 10 years or just 1 year? Where do real New Yorker’s recommend you go to eat or drink? On the NYC Local Guides podcast, host Jennifer O’Brien interviews New Yorkers from creatives to CEOs and everyone in between. She’ll ask the tough questions - from your favorite pizza joint to what you would change about the city. Hear first-hand stories like a native who grew up with Central Park as his backyard and The Met as his favorite place to play tag. Learn how a native avoided being jumped by doing graffiti on the subway. Find hope in a story of how a couple dancing in the street made one skeptical New York transplant fall in love with this city and buy a home here.

A perfect ode to the Big Apple

If you love New York, this in-depth and entertaining podcast is the show for you! Nothing beats learning the city’s secrets and lesser-known history from the people who live there. Plus, if you hope to live in NYC one day, this show will definitely get you there quickly. (Or if you’ve moved and miss it, this is the dose of NYC nostalgia you need!)
