It's been said there are as many New Yorks as there are New Yorkers.  That's partly true, but I think there are even more.  Even if you've never been here, you have an image of New York from movies, books and television.  It could be the art deco glamour of a Fred Astaire-Ginger Rogers movie, the grit of a Martin Scorsese drama, or the romance of "When Harry Met Sally" or "You've Got Mail."

Hello and thanks for visiting On Time New York.  Let me tell you a little about who I am.  As a native New Yorker, I am extraordinarily proud of my hometown.  From the time I learned to cross the street, I've been exploring, and so I know this city as only a native can.  I'm even proud of my New York accent!

I have always enjoyed sharing my love and knowledge of New York.  I have planned itineraries and booked travel for corporate executives and families.  As a Big Apple Greeter, I got to show visitors the "real" New York, how to get around and enjoy everything the city has to offer.  I also got to meet people from all over the world and see New York through their eyes.  It's wonderful to see as a visitor suddenly recognizes a building or a street they know from a movie.  And it's even more wonderful when I'm told how lucky I am to live here.  I know it!
