What You'll Do
For centuries, local taverns served not only as bars, but also as restaurants and hotels, bringing together citizens of all walks of life within their raucous walls. During this walking tour, New York–history expert Annaline Dinkelmann delves into the surprising—often lawless—stories behind the Financial District's most historic watering holes. You'll visit such institutions as Delmonico's and Fraunces Tavern—the spot where George Washington bade farewell to his officers with a magnificent turtle feast.
