Steve Madeja

My name is Steve, and I’m an animator and licensed New York City tour guide. I’m a sucker for dive bars, used bookstores, Tom Waits, and New York City history. When not giving tours, you can usually find me hanging out at home in Harlem with my wife and 2-year-old puppy, Shaggy. I’d love to hear your comments and feedback, especially if you have a lead on a good bit of trivia. Feel free to e-mail me at secretsofmanhattan@gmail.com.
