Emily Manz on Have You Met Newark Tours

Emily Manz, founder of Have You Met Newark Tours, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the biggest misconceptions of Brick City.

Founded in 2012, Have You Met Newark offers fun and informative walking tours, food tours, and bar crawls. Guides trace historic landmarks from Newark’s past and explores its current vibrancy with visits to galleries, shops, eateries, churches, and parks.

“One huge misconception is that the people in Newark don’t enjoy their hometown,” Manz says. “When you come on a tour, you really see that everyone is part of the community and contributing to their community.”

​The guides are Newark residents, and co-founders are urban planners committed to the city. Tours always feature guest speakers and include a snack.
