About New York State of Mind Tours
Trinity Church—around for more than 300 years. Fraunces Tavern—around for more than 250 years. Tablets—popular for about four years. Even though one of these things doesn't seem like the others, its presence does make sense on a tour from New York State of Mind Tours, as well as a list of things the village hermit will never see. That's because the company blends the past with the present during interactive tours that pair participants with handheld tablets. As guides lead tour-goers on in-person visits to prominent locales, the tablets feature slide shows and video clips about famous historical events and people for a multifaceted—and multimedia—experience. They can watch a custom animation of the original World Trade Center design while viewing the 9/11 Memorial, and learn about the men who built America during jaunts through Wall Street, and also hear stories about Manhattan's oldest surviving building, Fraunces Tavern, right before exploring the whiskey haven.
