Lower Manhattan: The Making of a Financial Mecca

Lower Manhattan is the birthplace of New York City and, of course, the site of its most tragic event. Our tour will bring the history of New York to life like you've never heard it before. While this tour is a great introduction to the city for visitors, natives - whether you work in financial district or only venture downtown on occasion - will simply be fascinated by the rich history of this small patch of land (and landfill).

The tour begins at the Netherlands Memorial flagpole at the Northestern edge of Battery Park.
Stops include:

* Castle Clinton National Monument, a fort from the War of 1812
* East Coast WW II Memorial
* Elizabeth Anne Seton shrine
* Fraunces Tavern
* Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House (now the Museum of the American Indian)
* Bowling Green Park, the oldest park in New York
* Wall Street's famous “Charging Bull” by Arturo diModica
* The New York Stock Exchange
* Federal Hall National Memorial
* Trinity Church
* The World Trade Center site
Take a CityListen tour and you will not be disappointed. You will have a historian or sociologist or scholar telling you great stories and offering you compelling insight into the places you are visiting. Even for natives, our tours can show you your own city in a whole new light
