Join Untapped New York’s chief experience officer Justin Rivers, FCRH ’01, for a guided tour around lower Manhattan. Explore where New York began and see what is left of Dutch New Amsterdam in today’s lower Manhattan. You will hear about New York’s founding myths and facts while standing in the very spots where they all happened. With New York City’s first map in hand, you will trace the streets of Manhattan in 1667 while discovering the many hidden Dutch relics south of Wall Street. Physically touch history as your spend time finding out how Bowling Green got its name and why it’s been so important in our city’s history. Among the many relics you will experience on this tour are the foundations of New York City’s first City Hall (which was also a tavern), the long-forgotten oyster pastry cannon, the original battery wall, and so much more!
The ticket cost includes both the tour and lunch.
The walking tour will be two hours. Additionally, please note that our tour will take place rain or shine.
This event is open to alumni and parents.
