Our journey starts in the Financial District, which some consider being New York City’s true heart. It was once a tiny Dutch hamlet, but today it’s home to multibillion-dollar transactions and global financial powerhouses. You’ll see and learn about the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and much more as you travel along Wall Street with your guide.
Take a moment to reflect and observe the 9/11 Memorial, which has two monumental fountains symbolically placed in the footprints of the Twin Towers. Hear incredible first-responder stories. Admire the architecture of the Freedom Tower and the Oculus, both of which were constructed from the ashes of Ground Zero.
We’ll next go to Battery Park, where you’ll learn about a piece of NYC history that few people are aware of: the ticker-tape parades commemorated at the Canyon of Heroes. From across the harbor, there is also a fantastic view of the Statue of Liberty. Your guide will engage you with stories about New York’s most iconic landmark while you take in the vistas, making this the ideal finale for our Lower Manhattan tour.
