Many people think of the New York City subway as one of the largest, most efficient, if not the cleanest mass transit systems in the world. Few, however, think of it as the largest and longest art gallery on the planet. Well, they don't know what they are missing. This lively walking AND subway riding tour visits over a dozen subway stations to experience a selection of these striking often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public. Join this climate controlled subway and walking art tour. Along the way you'll learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system. There's also the invaluable opportunity to confer about your other sightseeing plans with the acclaimed Bronx born, vastly experienced licensed NYC tour guide, Darryl Reilly.

Concert |
Growing up immersed in his father’s crates of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and classical records and influenced by the likes of Jackie Wilson and The Kinks, N’Gonda displays a vocal range that can soar like Prince in falsetto or deepen into a classic Stax-era blues growl, following the ebb and flow of his hook-filled songs. Having honed his craft in Liverpool and gigged across the U.K. and Europe, N’Gonda is now headlining shows in London, releasing a debut EP, and supporting touring acts, including Laura Mvula, Martha Reeves, and Lauryn Hill.
