Front steps of the U.S. Custom House, AKA the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian
Explore the neighborhood where New York began! Meeting on the steps of the US Custom House, the former site of the Dutch Fort Amsterdam, this tour will span 400 years of New York City history. From the original Dutch settlement and trading outpost at Bowling Green, to the peaceful takeover of the British in 1664, to the world financial capital of today, this tour has it all. Our walk weaves together the history of Lower Manhattan with the architecture, people and events that power “Wall Street”. We will visit many stops including Trinity Church, Federal Hall, the New-York Stock Exchange, sites associated with 18th century slave uprisings, Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Victoria Woodhull, JP Morgan and Abbie Hoffman.
