Your guide will tell you about the early days in New York when it was a tiny colony below the wall, which later became known as Wall Street. During the walk you’ll pass the Federal Hall National Memorial, built as the United States Custom House on the same site where George Washington was inaugurated!
You’ll see the famous New York Stock Exchange, now recognized as one of the financial epicenters of the world's markets.
