Hello everybody, my name is Alessia Nencioni I'm from Florence, Italy and I came here 15 years ago as tourist myself and then fell in love with this vibrant city (and not only the city ...) and decided to stay. I fell in love also with the amazing architecture, I'm very passionate about Art Deco and New York is the "Mecca" of this exciting and elegant style . I discovered then so many more aspect to this city that I used to know and that usually people who don't live here , really know.
Here I also found the inspiration to follow my creativity and design a line of accessories for children and room decor and open my own internet based company , AnHandmade designs. I was always very creative , but never thought to develop my passion into a real business. New York gave me a special energy and helped me believe in myself and my potential.
A little over two years ago I felt the need to share all my knowledge about New York as an "insider" who also still has a tourist point of you, so that people that are visiting the city can appreciate a little bit more of the "real" Big Apple and the incredible energy that it transmits through its people. I'm very passionate about this job for I also love to meet new people and their stories and always rediscover New York through their fresh eyes.
