8. Stone Street Tavern Foundation

Stone Street Tavern foundation, a relic of colonial NYC

Perhaps one of the more surprising places you’ll find a remnant of colonial NYC is on your way to the bathroom inside the Stone Street Tavern. Located at 52 Stone Street, the tavern’s building was constructed in 1836, likely after an original structure was burnt down in the Great Fire of 1835.

The new building was constructed on top of an 18th-century foundation. You can still see part of the foundation in the stairwell that leads to the current restaurant’s lower-level restrooms. The Stone Street Tavern is a favorite of Untapped New York’s Chief Experience Officer Justin Rivers and a perfect spot to grab a drink after joining Untapped New York’s remnants of Dutch New Amsterdam tour!
