Trained as an art historian and archaeologist, Elizabeth has made New York City’s museums her home for over 5 years. In fact, it was visits to the Met, and a few others, that inspired her career choice. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Archaeology of the Ancient Near East and Art History at Lycoming College, a master’s degree at New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, where she specialized in the Art and Archaeology of Ancient Egypt, brought her to the city full-time. Since graduating in 2015, Elizabeth has cultivated a passion for education, and the visitor experience, as well as the history of art.
Isabelle is a Brooklyn-based artist and teacher. Originally from France, she immigrated to the USA at age 17. Fluent in French and English, she fell in love with New York as a student and her tours are enriched by her passion for both the iconic sites and hidden gems of Manhatten and beyond. A working artist who uses non-traditional materials, performance, and community engagement to make large-scale public installations, she has exhibited widely in the area and abroad. She has years of experience teaching art across age levels, including at the university level.
Jonathan was born in New York City and has spent most of his life in and around the bustling metropolis he loves so deeply. He received his BFA from the City's most vibrant art school then left for a year to explore London and receive his MFA from that City's most dynamic art school. He returned to work in one of the most notable art galleries in town until his desire to tell stories and interact with those curious about New York's mysteries got the best of him. He has now been a local guide for nearly a decade and a half and would love to share some of his favorite tales with you.
