About

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.

To really get to know the city, you need to venture outside the well trafficked tourist districts and head for the neighborhoods where New Yorkers live. In other words, you have to go off the beaten path and explore.

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.

Just let us know what your interests are and what you’d like to see and We Can Tour That with you! Continue Reading

STATEN ISLAND

St. George – Right outside the State Island Ferry Terminal is St. George. With its bustling atmosphere, vibrant community, and cultural attractions, the community of St. George is a great place for you to explore. Instead of returning directly to Manhattan, take the time to eat at one of St. Georges many great restaurants, explore its museums, or watch a Staten Island Yankees ball game!

SNUG HARBOR – Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden was initially built in the 1800s as a home for retired sailors. The 23 historical buildings, nine botanical gardens and 10 acres of wetlands are set on an 83-acre campus. The venue, a Smithsonian affiliate, is home to the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, the Noble Maritime Collection, Staten Island Children’s Museum, the arts school Art Lab and the Staten Island Museum.

LITTLE SRI LANKA – Nestled into the northeast corner of Staten Island, close by the ferry terminal is a small neighborhood known as Little Sri Lanka. It is home to the world’s largest community of Sri Lankans outside the country itself. The area is home to many restaurants and grocers specializing in foods, teas, spices and other products you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere in the City.  Go there to sample a few of the authentic dishes—like roti, sambols and baked goods.
