New York Sports Tours And Launch Of History

By Rich Mancuso/ Sports Editor

Brian Cashman the NY Yankees General Manager is a part of New York sports history and he should be with his success and longtime tenure of building championships in the Bronx. He, along with New York Knicks legend John Starks, sports broadcaster Mary Carillo, and soccer great Shep Messing all agree that New York City is a sports town.

And they all agreed, a city that is rich and full of sports history.  Together, along with others on hand, they helped launch New York Sports Tours Thursday afternoon at the historic Keens Steakhouse in Manhattan.

New York Sports Tours is the only luxury sports tour experience that features exclusive exclusive documentaries and other original content. The three-hour multimedia tour is conducted in a luxury vehicle throughout midtown Manhattan and a live narrator describes on scene about places and events that shaped the culture and society in New York with emphasis of the New York sports history.

The events, places, and of course the athletes who have impacted New York City sports over the years and the history that is difficult to duplicate will be seen and narrated.

“Glad to be a part of this venture,” Cashman said. “Of course the Yankees have the history and Yankee Stadium.”

The tour begins on Vanderbilt Avenue near Grand Central Terminal and passes more than 50 points of interest from greater New York sports history with stories that demonstrate sports’ influence over the past 150 years in fields such as advertising. architecture, civil rights, entertainment, fashion, finance, health, language, law, politics, and science.

“A ride through time,” Carillo said.

Nine guests seats are available per tour. There are plans to expand that to 20. All tours are scheduled to end at Keens, an iconic restaurant that has hosted sports figures for more than 130 years. On select days, the experience continues with an ultimate lunch or dinner with a New York sports personality.

“Instead of walking around you get to see a part of New York sports history,” Starks said.
