It was an excellent tour, very informative and enjoyable. Gave a different perspective with lots of history and anecdotes. The guide was great, very friendly and easy to talk to and ask questions. Would recommend it to anyone vsiting/living in NY.

Description

In addition to looking at our early Dutch and English past, here is a sample of the other things we will uncover on this memorable tour:

We will visit the oldest public building in NY — one which survived two great fires, played host to George Washington, and most miraculously, emerged relatively unscathed from the devastation of 9/11 and served as a critical disaster recovery site.

We will explore the “heart” of Wall Street and talk about the importance of the New York Stock Exchange and the former “House of Morgan”, as well as the site where George Washington became America’s first president and where a deadly explosion temporarily shut down Wall Street.

We will discuss two important Downtown skyscrapers — one which was in a race for the world’s tallest in 1929 and one which led to the “Wedding Cake” skyline Manhattan is so famous for.

Wear comfortable footwear and dress for the weather. Guests are encouraged to bring a camera.
