Seek New York LLC

New York City tours with an entertainment twist.

Seek New York, LLC specializes in New York shopping and sightseeing tours, all led by a licensed guide who is also a working member of the entertainment community. Fashion-related tours are led by a costume designer and stylist, while arts-focused tours are led by professional performers.

Owner Rebecca Frey is a costume designer and stylist with twelve years of professional experience in the entertainment industry, and many more in school and community theatre. She spent years working full-time in television, contributing designs to shows like Late Night with Conan O’Brien and Saturday Night Live.

While shooting on location and shopping at virtually every store in town, she developed a vast knowledge of New York City’s many resources, from popular tourist spots to little-known nooks and crannies. Rebecca founded Seek as a means of sharing her professional experience and love of the city with tourists and locals alike, and to provide an opportunity to bring together talented industry professionals with “everyday” folks who are interested in experiencing NYC from a truly unique perspective.

Dancers and parents in need of custom-made costumes, Seek also offers personal styling and costume design services, pairing each client with a working TV/film or theatre designer to collaborate on the perfect costume for your needs!
