GuidesWhat do tour guides who are members of the Guides Association of NYC do on our daze off? We go on tours with other tour guides. Monday's tour was with Bronx (and knitting) expert Susan of Susan Sez. (Group picture by tour guide JoAnn Fynke)




IMG_0871Our destination was the Andrew Freedman Home to see the current exhibit by Bronx born artist Daniel Hauben.

That exhibit ends April 24, 2014 however 22 paintings are permanently installed at the North Hall and library of Bronx Community College. And, there will be other exhibits to see at the Andrew Freedman Home.


Our guide at the Home was Jeanine Alfieri who is also one of the artists in residence. We visited several other studios including the studio of Aaron Lazansky-Olivas  aka @spazecraft . Loved his stickers.  The home is open to the public from 10-5 week days and on Saturdays there is a lot of community programming going on.  The current website might not be totally up to date but it will provide lots of information about current activities.  There is also a Facebook page.

This is a wonderful place to visit before a Yankee game. In season, there is a great skateboard space. The Bronx Museum is nearby and Woodlawn Cemetery is a short subway ride away. You can also stay for two nights in the very legal bed and breakfast at the Andrew Freedman Home.
