I purchased this for my mother for the holidays. She got into a car accident and broke her back the weekend before the tour. Emailed the organizer to ask if we could postpone for a few months until she was back on her feet. The...More

Let me start with the basics: 1. Mr.Rafael Risemberg needs to take a shower and dry clean that puffy winter jacket when he is around his paying costumers. While you do not hire the professor to give you a runway show or smell him (but...More

Tour in TriBeCa 11/23/13. Guide seemed unprepared, commentary was trite and uneducated as to background and significance of art viewed. Almost entirely relied on New York Times reviews. Shame, Rafael has gotten great reviews previously.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
