What You'll Get
Have you ever wondered where Wall Street, Battery Park, or Bowling Greene got their name from? Discover this and much more on this historical walking tour of Dutch Amsterdam's remnants! Although virtually nothing remains of Dutch New Amsterdam, the Dutch influence is felt in many hidden relics south of Wall Street, which includes the massive one hidden in plain sight: the original street grid embedded in lower Manhattan grid today! On this tour you will walk New York City's original coastline, discover the remains of Manhattan’s first City Hall, learn about the history of the original Dutch fort, windmill and battery. You will also explore a hidden street frozen in time in the middle of skyscrapers, and learn about the legend of Peg-Leg Pete.
