While all eyes are on Washington, D.C. this week for the Inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, the very first Presidential Inauguration took place right here in lower Manhattan. Join Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers as he takes you back to that April in 1789 and walks you down George Washington’s inaugural parade route from the site of the nation’s first White House (now under the anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge) to the original Federal Hall.

On this virtual tour, today at noon, we’ll reimagine what a packed inaugural parade in 1789 New York would’ve looked like and see exactly what Washington saw when he took the first oath as President of the United States. Along the way, the tour will stop at historic spots linked to Washington back when New York was the nation’s original seat of government.
