This two-hour Saturday afternoon walking tour takes you through the oldest parts of New York City.
With highlights that include Battery Park, Bowling Green, Fraunces Tavern, and Wall Street, this walk explores New York City from its founding as a Dutch settlement on the Hudson River to its rise to become one of the world’s great financial centres.
