New Amsterdam: The Birthplace of New York

New York Local Tours

What You'll Get

A paper voucher is required to redeem this service. Please bring your printed voucher with you to this activity.

Step into the wooden shoes of the original settlers of New York and see what life was like as an employee rather than a colonist. Based on exciting new research taking place over the last 35 years, the tour guide will present a brand new side of this brave new world never heard of before. From Native American raids to the origin of the cookie, to everyone’s least-favorite peg-legged governor, see it all.

Start in Battery Park, by Castle Clinton National Monument, at the southernmost tip of Manhattan. From there, explore Manhattan's financial district, seeing all of the monuments dedicated to this exciting period in New York's history. Then hit Wall Street, where you may find the things thought of as very New York were actually very Dutch.

Finally, in true 17th-century Dutch fashion, end the tour in a tavern on Stone Street, the oldest paved street in New York City, for some food and drink.
