So where do we start? New York was the first capital of the United States? You might think that’s as good a place as any, but not so. The real place to start our New York walking tour is with the Dutch West India Company.
Yes, that’s correct. We (New Yorkers) were Dutch and Wall Street was a real wall. If you already knew that, you’ll still want to take our tour to find out how much of downtown New York is landfill and how much is really original New York. On our Historic Downtown tour of New York City you’ll get to experience Ground Zero after 9/11 by reserving for 4:30 PM at the end of your tour (911memorial.org). Also see the Stone Street Historic District (the oldest neighborhood in Manhattan) and Trinity Church, to name just a few landmarks. There’s so much New York history in this walking tour that every step opens up a new page in the history book. So come join us in Historic Downtown NYC and see for yourself!
