Outside In Tour Guides -- Ray

Ray Ray has been a licensed New York City tour guide for over 12 years. He has done bus and walking tours in Manhattan and his hometown, Brooklyn USA. Along with all the great history and architecture that Ray talks about he loves to dig up quirky facts.

"It's fun to tell folks about the fascinating history of the Empire State Building, but it's also fun to tell them in 1838 the first giraffes in America were exhibited in a vacant lot that is now 509 Broadway! I think adding on odd fact or two makes touring New York even more enjoyable."

Ray also performs as a stand-up comedian and has been on stage all over the city. Married to his lovely wife, Mindy, he resides in Queens, NY. Interests are reading, baseball, cooking shows, comedy, and music (blues, rock-n-roll).
