GREETERS meet visitors from all over the world and share the New York City neighborhoods the greeter knows well. Greeters are not professional tour guides; rather, greeters show visitors around the way a visiting friend or family member would be shown New York City.  Greeters spend up to 4 daylight hours with visitors (up to 6 people) at least 12 times per year.  There are greeter visits to choose from 365 days per year.
