Virtual Tour: Retracing Washington’s Inaugural NYC Parade Route

Federal Hall exteriorA piece of the balcony Washington stood on for his inaugurationFederal Hall

Although all eyes will be on Washington, D.C. this January 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 walks you down the 1789 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. We'll reimagine what a packed 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 a couple of historic spots linked to Washington back when New York was the nation's original seat of government.
