What to expect

You may know Wall Street as the center of global finance, but did you also know that it hosted the first presidential inauguration? This tour will reveal to you the overlooked history of the neighborhood and cover both historic points of interest, like the old slave market, as well as current attractions like the New York Stock Exchange and the Fearless Girl statue. This is a great way for anyone with an interest in American history to see some of the sights that have been instrumental to the founding and growth of America. Your guide will meet you at Bowling Green, a small park that doesn’t look like much today but was once George Washington’s Front Yard. Wall Street is full of these little surprises and you'll get to see a handful of them as you go through the neighborhood. Your tour guide will show you remnants of the Dutch Colony of New Amsterdam, point out the oldest building in Manhattan, walk you down the shortest street, and show you various places that played a prominent role in the American Revolution. You'll also go to places connected with more modern history, like the New York Stock Exchange, the Charging Bull Statue, and the Fearless Girl Statue. Visiting these attractions with an expert guide makes them come alive in ways that books and audio guides simply can’t compare to. They aren’t just showing you around, they are revealing the history hidden in some of the most historic streets in Manhattan. Sites Visited: - US Customs House - Bowling Green - “The Bull” - The Fearless Girl - Fraunces Tavern - Stone St. - India House/ Harry’s - Federal Hall - JP Morgan Building - NYSE
