See the beauty and history of lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge at an easy pace on a 2-hour private walking tour. One of New York's best tour guides will pass along expert knowledge of New York's history.
New York City began in lower Manhattan as the Dutch colony town of Nieuw Amsterdam, in 1626. It grew from the Battery Park area, a quarter-mile north to what is now Wall Street. Taken over by the British in 1664, New York then grew beyond 'the wall' northward, eventually taking over the entire 17km (13 mile) island.
Once the hub of New York's maritime trading empire, the tour begins and ends in historic South Street Seaport. You will touch an artifact that was created at the start of the American Revolution. Plus, enjoy great views of the Statue of Liberty, the Sphere ' a sculpture that once graced the World Trade Center, and the New York Stock Exchange.'
