As Greeter for a Day, Mr. Catell accompanied Big Apple Greeter Ruth Nordenbrook and three visitors from Saskatchewan, Canada, for an informal walk in downtown Brooklyn. Beginning at the National Grid’s office in the MetroTech Center, Mr. Catell provided a tour of National Grid’s gas control and customer care centers, followed by a walk to the Brooklyn Academy of Music for a tour of this historic performing art center.
Mr. Catell welcomed this one-time opportunity to share his love and enthusiasm for New York City and its neighborhoods with appreciative visitors, and he relished his role as goodwill ambassador for New York City.
The Greeter for a Day program invites business, community, and government leaders to fill a Greeter’s shoes for a few hours. By sharing his or her love and enthusiasm for New York City and its neighborhoods with an appreciative visitor, the Greeter for a Day promotes New York City the Big Apple Greeter way.
