Francesco was born in Sicily and grew up in New York. He graduated with a Master's degree in Architecture and worked professionally in that field for his entire career. When he retired, Frank started leading tours of his city as a way to share New York with visitors from all over the world. When leading tours of the history, architecture and food scene of NYC, Frank is introducing visitors, or new friends, to this intriguing city, revealing its hidden and sometimes forgotten past, in order to better understand its present. A true “Cicerone”, storytelling is at the center of Frank’s tours and he introduces visitors to the characters from New York’s rich history, from his Sicilian grandmother to Emily Roebling, a little know contributor to the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. Frank’s passion for all things New York shines through on his tours all over Manhattan.
