My name is John Semlak. I am a 44-year-old tour guide living in the Big Apple now for 5 years. I've lived in 4 countries in my life, including 15 years in Moscow Russia and have traveled 4 continents and 40+ countries so far. I speak Russian and conduct tours in English and Russian.
My interests include of course New York City history, travel, table-top gaming, and Russian culture. In addition to Explore New York, I have a general interest blog where I write about topical subjects that interest me.
