R. C. Staab


From his first trip to NYC as a teenager, R. C. Staab imagined living in Manhattan to experience its theater, museums, and incredibly diverse neighborhoods. That dream came true when he and his wife, Valari, moved to Manhattan to live near Clue #1 on the Upper West Side. For more than 40 years, he has been a tourism and culture expert who has been quoted by and had photos published in numerous publications including the New York Times, USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the LA Times and CNN. He wrote 100 Things to Do at the Jersey Shore Before You Die, now in its second printing. He hopes you’ll join him in exploring the most amazing city on earth!
