First time visitors to New York City generally head straight for Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. While these are all must see attractions, they are just the tip of the iceberg of all that the city has to offer.

Our goal at We Can Tour That is to assist you in seeing all that New York has to offer. We Can Tour That provides personal guided tours of New York’s many neighborhoods. We can take you beyond the usual sites to see what makes NYC the greatest city in the world.

Barnett Baff was a poultry dealer, murdered on November 24, 1914 by an organized crime syndicate that represented the “poultry trust”. The trust extorted $10 per truckload of poultry from merchants.
