The Bowery Boys: New York City History

New York City history is America's history. It's the hometown of the world, and most people knows its familiar landmarks, buildings and streets. Why not look a little closer and have fun while doing it? The Bowery Boys, Greg Young and Tom Meyers, have lived in New York for the last fifteen years and have been curious about the city since the day they arrived. Join them for a fun take on history, a "romp down the back alleys of New York City." Every other week, they look into another fascinating aspect of the Big Apple -- the people, the places, its beginnings and effects on American culture. (For our older shows, please check out the podcast 'NYC History: Bowery Boys Archive', also here on iTunes.)

As a native New Yorker I was initially appalled by the idea that some transplants would even attempt to illustrate the rich history of my hometown, but I got over that quickly once I heard this adorkable duo. Not only is their podcast informative but colorful as well. In fact, they've taught me a few odd facts about the city that I definitely could not have discovered anywhere else. The Bowery Boys have so much fun with New York City history I wish they operated a bar tour, because I imagine them sipping on Manhattans as they record their podcasts.

If a straight trucker from the South listened to all episodes in one day... must be pretty a damned interesting podcast. And it is. It's informative and detailed, yet short and personalized. I parked the semi in Jersey and took a self-guided walking tour of the city last weekend, just based on some suggestions from the Bowery Boys.

New York, New York, It's a Hell of a Town!

I love the idea of 'outsiders' presenting a history of New York. The perspective is a smooth blend of wide-eyed appreciation and well-researched knowledge. Can't wait for them to post a picture. It should be something 1950s classy to go with the theme song. Greg and Tom's delivery resembles a cabaret duo. The fun sound effects (love the tickles of the ivory and dog barks) help the gobs of information they dish out easy to digest.
