Our tour begins in the Financial District, New York City’s real heart, some say. Once a small Dutch settlement, it’s now home to billion-dollar deals and global financial powerhouses. As you walk Wall Street with your guide, you’ll see and learn about the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and much more.
At the 9/11 Memorial, pause to reflect and admire this tribute to the lives lost, including two large fountains symbolically set in the footprints of the Twin Towers. Hear heroic tales of first responders. Marvel at the architecture of Freedom Tower and the Oculus, built from the ashes of Ground Zero.
Next, we’ll head to Battery Park, where you’ll discover a kernel of NYC history few know: the ticker-tape parades honored at the Canyon of Heroes. This is also a wonderful viewpoint for the Statue of Liberty, seen from across the bay.
