I’m Jon Barr, and after nearly a decade spent living in New York City I’m going to share my exclusive tips and tricks to make sure your next trip to the Big Apple is a memorable one. My YouTube Channel has 150,000 subscribers and has been viewed nearly 25 million times. This blog is a supplement to my videos, so you can organize that next trip to the Big Apple like a pro.

I’ve been a New York City resident since 2011, and grew up across the Hudson River in Jersey. I studied Journalism at Rutgers University, and was a professional sports broadcaster for a decade on television and radio. I live with my wife Adriana, in Greenwich Village, Manhattan and enjoy long walks to Trader Joe’s and all the New York pizza I can handle.
