The Alexander Hamilton walking tour takes you through the founding of New York City.
With highlights that include Battery Park, Bowling Green, Fraunces Tavern, Wall Street, and the World Trade Center site, this ambitious walk explores New York City from its founding as a Dutch settlement on the Hudson River to its rise as the world’s financial capital. Your guide will bring NYC to life through the eyes of Alexander Hamilton, a penniless immigrant who rose to become our nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury.
As you walk by Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and the Federal Reserve building you will discover all that went into the making of our modern financial system, including a bitter argument between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson about whether to embrace a capitalist society.
Your guide will also take you through the more recent history of lower New York with stories of the Statue of Liberty, immigration at Ellis Island, and the Canyon of Heroes. Your journey concludes at the site of the World Trade Center.
