8. You can see George Washington’s tooth at Fraunces Tavern

Fraunces Tavern

Fraunces Tavern on the corner of Pearl and Broad Streets is often called the oldest building in Manhattan and while it’s unclear if any of the building is actually original, today the upstairs is a small Revolutionary War museum. During the earliest years right after the Revolutionary War established the United States as an independent country, the building served as an office for the ministers of war, finance, and foreign affairs. George Washington gave his farewell address on Pearl Street in 1783.

The next time you’re having a drink in the pub, go upstairs and you can see one of George Washington’s teeth as well as a lock of his hair and even a piece of his coffin.
