In my tour, I believe I will present a knowledgeable sense of the main landmarks in the areas of Old City and Independence National Historical Park, adding my consciousness of how our views of history have changed over time and can be a big influence on what we save and what we remove, in a city known for saving a lot of its heritage.
I am 55, and for 46 years, since I was 9 years old, I have been in love with history, especially urban history, and fortunate to delve into the history of a number of urban regions, while especially my adopted city for the last 30 years - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I have been a tourguide for 21 years, and my home area of Northeastern Ohio.
