New York City is the greatest city in the world because people from all over bring their culture to it. Immigrants from places like Ireland, China, Italy, Puerto Rico, Nigeria, and Mexico come here and fill the streets with their food, their music and their culture.  Some immigrants have come from Wisconsin and have made their impact known.

Forward in Manhattan - A Walking Tour of Manhattan By Wisconsinites, for Wisconsinites

On this tour we’ll talk about some of the former Wisconsinites who have done great things in New York City.

And we’ll also talk about other ways that New York City affected Wisconsin over the years. This tour is a celebration of both what Wisconsin has given to this city and what it has received. You’ll probably learn as much about Wisconsin as NYC but it’s just another way to talk about the city and connect what you know to what you don’t.


Come on this two hour tour and learn a bunch, drink a little and laugh a lot. There’s probably no other tour in NYC that celebrates a single state like this one… but there’s probably no other state that deserves as much discussion. It’s the best fun you’ll have since you closed Wolski’s.
