J.D. Hirsch founded Sidewalks of NY Tours a decade ago, when he started taking friends and family on walking tours of the city he loves. His biggest motivation was to make sure his guests experienced The TRUE New York. Through years of exploration, he discovered the secret hideaways and hidden gems that make New York unlike any other city in the world. He combed the streets, tasting authentic ethnic cuisines and culinary delights not found in any guide books. His lengthy walking adventures took him to dinky mom-and-pop specialty food shops and ethnic eateries that have stood the test of time. He began compiling a "best of" list in search of the greatest delicatessens, bagel and knish shops, coffee houses, bakeries, candy stores, hamburger joints, pizzerias, and more.
