ABOUT THE OWNER, LESLIE SCHATZER


In early 2010 I created Big Apple Lansman Tours as a vehicle to perpetuate Jewish history in America. In particular, my focus became the “Great Migration” of the Jews from Eastern Europe and Russia, and its impact on the country.


As a youngster, I was mesmerized by my grandmother’s textbook story of her journey to America from “Steerage to Skyscraper”. On some deep level I understood how important it was to share her story.

With over 20 years in the hospitality industry, I had the opportunity to develop group business to hotels in the US and internationally. Later on I decided that it would be a natural coupling of these two events…my experiences as a hotel professional and my Grandmother’s stories. I would then start my own journey to share what became an important message to my peers and future generations of all ethnicities in America.

Making the transition from the resort hotel industry to opening a Jewish heritage tour company was a natural one. My love of history and having the distinct advantage of being a long time New York City resident, gave me a solid foundation to build this business.

As they say, “The rest is history”!
