My name is Kevin Fitzpatrick and I'm an author and walking tour guide from the Upper West Side of Manhattan. See New York City the best way possible: on a walking tour with a licensed sightseeing guide. I have been leading walking tours of New York for more than 13 years. All five of my walks are unique and I have written and researched all of them myself. I'm the author of "A Journey into Dorothy Parker's New York" and "Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide." I co-edited "The Lost Algonquin Round Table."

 

I like that Mayor Ed Koch has an eternal resting place (it’s beautiful) that has a view of a #bodega. So fitting for a great New Yorker #grave #cemetery #history #manhattan #tombstone #trinity  (at Trinity Church Cemetery & Mausoleum)

In funerary art lambs mark the graves of children, especially infants. Lambs symbolize innocence. It’s rare to see a double lamb, but this grave marks two little brothers, New Yorkers who died over 123 years ago #cemetery #grave #trinity #nyc #manhattan #tombstone  (at Trinity Church Cemetery & Mausoleum)

Crazy Glenn Wernig, East Village legendary illustrator-writer-drink hound, signs his new book for me.  “How I Spent My Permanent Vacation” which is his 2nd illustrated guide to #NYC #bars. I think I’ve been drinking with him for close to 20 years. #drinks #illustration #author #writer #beer  (at Doc Holliday’s)

My #throwbackThursday is a John Held, Jr. piece circa 1925. I can never get enough of him; I talk about Held on my walking tours and use his art in my books whenever possible.

The saddest spot in Manhattan. My annual visit to St. Claire Pollock, one of the few public burials in the city. The Amiable Child was 4 when he died in 1797. #nyc #history #parks #grave #morningside #hudsonriver  (at The Amiable Child Monument)
