Discover the many hidden Dutch relics south of Wall Street as you trace the streets of Manhattan in 1667 on Untapped New York’s upcoming Remnants of Dutch New Amsterdam walking tour. Explore where New York began and see what is left of Dutch New Amsterdam as you discover the colonial history of the street grid New Yorkers walk today. In this small-group walking tour, you’ll hear about New York’s founding myths and facts while standing in the very spots where they all happened.
With New York City’s first map in hand as you walk along with Manhattan’s original coastline, you will get to physically touch history as you spend time finding out how Bowling Green got its name and why it’s been so important in our city’s history! Among the many relics you will uncover on this tour are the foundations of New York City’s first City Hall (which was also a tavern!), the long-forgotten oyster pasty cannon, the original battery wall and so much more! This New Amsterdam tour is led by an expert guide from the Untapped New York team.
All of Untapped New York’s upcoming in-person experiences will adhere to our new health and safety measures to ensure everyone has a fun and safe time. The first Remnants of Dutch New Amsterdam tour will run on Sunday, August 30th.
