Lower Manhattan

This is where it all began – the Dutch settlement of New Amsterdam. It was defined by two rivers, defended by a wood and earth wall (Wall Street!) and crowded with fortune seekers, sailors, traders, writers and ambitious politicians. Some things never change!

We will show you the “can’t miss” highlights like the New York Stock Exchange, South Street Seaport, Battery Park and Castle Clinton, “Fearless Girl” and the Charging Bull statues.

You’ll see little known gems and learn some of the inside secrets!

Respectfully, we include the September 11 Memorial Plaza and the surrounding streets, teeming anew with energy as more and more business and visitors move down town.

Financial District

Here you will see:

The New York Stock Exchange and its Dow Jones Industrial Index is one of the most closely watched economic indicators in the world. We will see where it is, show you the streets, shops, restaurants and bars that support it.

Federal Hall – site of George Washington’s inauguration – stands proudly opposite the Stock Exchange, a symbol of democracy and beacon of freedom everywhere.

Trinity Church, chartered in 1697, is one of the richest parishes in the nation with assets in excess of $2billion – site of Alexander Hamilton’s grave

9/11 Memorial

The iconic waterfalls and solemnly engraved names of victims always move and inspire, no matter how many times you pass through…

Our tour here focuses on both the tragic events of September 11 and the renewal taking place all around. From stories of heroism and sacrifice, we draw strength to face the future, rebuilding and thriving again.

One World Observatory

The tallest building in the Western Hemisphere at 1,776 feet – commemorating the year of the signing of America’s Declaration of Independence

Historic Stone Street

First cobblestone paved street in New Amsterdam (1658)

The area was largely destroyed in the Great Fire of 1855 and languished until it was revitalized in the early 1990’s led by the development of Ulysses Cafe.

Today, the street is crowded with tables, umbrellas and canopies filled with locals, commuters, tourists and office workers looking to enjoy a break, replacing the hectic pace of NYC with the equally brisk, but much more atmospheric Stone Street restaurants.

South Street Seaport

Pirates, celebrities, adventurers and merchants walked these cobblestones – although they wouldn’t recognize the stores, restaurants and shops, the vibrant feel of commerce and entertainment would soon have them feeling right at home.

See where the likes of Thomas Edison, Butch Cassidy and Theodore Roosevelt lounged in the most glamorous bar of the day before boarding steamships!

Pirates, fugitives, longshoremen and the working poor supported NYC’s oldest bar.

Now you can find international cuisine from award winning chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang – bespoke movie theater experiences (with table side food service!) at iPic Theaters and one-of-a-kind shopping at stores like 10 Corso Como’s first USA location!
