I am a foodie who frequents Downtown Manhattan and I'd love to show people around the food scene. I would also like to introduce people to the characters that inspire much of my written work.
Abdii is cultural explorer, a modern urban poet, and a passionate foodie. If you want to see New York at the street level with its mix of tastes, colors and ethnicities, he is the CityPal to do this with. This was Abdii first CityPals tour, but it felt like he had done this for years. He took me through lower Manhattan to soak in the human experience of New York City. He made the tour memorable with factoids about art, food, architecture, history, politics and everything in between. Abdii’s life story is as interesting as his tour...from a childhood in Ethiopia to NYU and eventually becoming a mosaic craftsman and artist. I highly recommend him for a New York tour that is rich in colors, flavors, information and most of all, human experience.6 months ago
