Gangs of New York-Nieuw Amsterdam Tour: Lower Manhattan's Early Days
This two-hour walking tour passes through Chinatown, the densest ethnic neighborhood in New York and the largest Chinese neighborhood outside Beijing. Continuing on, you'll come to the Five Points area. Featured prominently in the film Gangs of New York, this district during the nineteenth century was filled with dilapidated tenement housing, gang extortion, corrupt politicians, houses of ill-repute and gambling. All manner of crime flourished here as residents were terrorized and squalor prevailed. As your guide shares fascinating stories of the era, you'll enter into the City Hall and City Hall Park area with its architectural gems: the Tweed Courthouse, the Woolworth Building, and across to the Brooklyn Bridge. The magnificently renovated South Street Seaport sets the tone for early New York and its trade by sea. This is really the heart of Old New York and its Dutch roots. Starting from the Old Port, with its restored storefronts, museum and tall ships, you'll head into the epicenter of the financial district and Wall Street. Pass by the iconic Trinity Church and graveyard, St. Paul's Chapel, and the beloved bronze Charging Bull sculpture in the heart of New York's historic power and the finance that drives the country. Pass by the Staten Island ferry, Fraunces Tavern, and the Battery, heading toward the 9/11 Memorial, with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island visible in the harbor. As the tour reaches its finale, the new Liberty Tower rises from the ashes of what was formerly known as Ground Zero.
