Acre for acre there is more history in New York City’s Financial District than anywhere else in the country and most of is buried under strata of infrastructure or hidden in plain sight. On Untapped New York’s Hidden Gems of the Financial District walking tour, you will explore that history while making surprising discoveries along the way. From the spot where American government and capitalism once lived across the street from each other to some of the buried secrets of New York City’s past and present, this Wall Street tour goes digging through the layers of history that helped to define not only New York City but the entire country.
On this tour, you will trace the history of FiDi’s famous streets from the days of Dutch New Amsterdam and see how the city evolved since then. See where Washington stood when he was inaugurated, decode cryptic gravestones in Trinity Churchyard, and visit a 19th-century candy store hidden in an office building. You will even get to physically touch remnants of the city’s past including an 18th-century stone wall located in the subway!
