We’ll show you the last remaining gas lamp lights and explore how stocks were originally traded. You will amble down Wall Street, explore the Stone Street Historic District (New York City’s oldest neighborhood), see the famed Trinity Church, Federal Hall, visit Hamilton’s gravesite and experience how 9-11 transformed these sacred grounds.

What To Expect
1
New York City Hall
Constructed from 1803 to 1812, the building is the oldest city hall in the United States that still houses its original governmental functions, such as the office of the Mayor of New York City and the chambers of the New York City Council.
2
Woolworth Building
The Woolworth Building is an early American skyscraper designed by architect Cass Gilbert.. It was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, with a height of 792 feet.
3
St. Paul's Chapel
When it first opened in 1766 as an outreach chapel of Trinity Church to better serve its expanding congregation, St. Paul’s was a “chapel-of-ease” for those who did not want to walk a few blocks south along unpaved streets to Trinity. A decade later, the Great Fire of 1776 destroyed the first Trinity Church, but St. Paul’s survived, thanks to a bucket brigade dousing the building with water. Until the second Trinity Church was rebuilt in 1790, many, including George Washington, made St. Paul’s their church home. On April 30, 1789, after Washington took the oath of office to become the first President of the United States, he made his way from Federal Hall on Wall Street to St. Paul’s Chapel, where he attended services. -trinitywallstreet.org

6
Wall Street
Wall Street is an eight-block-long street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. It runs between Broadway in the west to South Street and the East River in the east. The term "Wall Street" has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry, New York–based financial interests, or the Financial District itself.
7
Stone Street Historic District
Stone Street is one of New York's oldest streets, incorporating two 17th-century roads in the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam. In 1658 it became the first cobbled street in New Amsterdam. Following the British conquest of the colony, the street was called Duke Street before being renamed Stone Street, for its cobblestone paving, in 1794.
8
Bowling Green
Bowling Green is a small public park in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City, at the southern end of Broadway. Located next to the site of the original Dutch fort of New Amsterdam, it served as a public place before being designated as a park in 1733. It is the oldest public park in New York City and is surrounded by its original 18th-century fence. It included an actual bowling green and an equestrian statue of King George III prior to the American Revolutionary War.

The Chinatown Tour is a must. If you get lucky, Jake will be your guide. He is knowledgeable about this neighborhood that is different than all others in Manhattan. The architecture is interesting, the people are friendly, and the food was delicious. In addition, Jake makes the walk fun!
