New York City: South of Manhattan Walking Tour

4. New York City: South of Manhattan Walking Tour

You’ll spend a couple of hours discovering how this historic neighborhood – which welcomed the first European immigrants – became the center of international finance and the economic beating heart of New York. It has never stopped reinventing itself and transforming, adapting and recovering to shocks like the Wall Street crash, 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Sandy. Step 1 : New York’s Foundations Cross over New York’s oldest street, Stone Street, and admire the first skyscrapers. These are the Woolworth Building and the Civic Center (Court and City Hall). Then walk the streets along the city’s original buildings. Step 2 : The Wolf of Wall Street At the heart of global finance! Pretend you’re a trader for a few hours in the financial district of Wall Street, home to investment banks and the New York Stock Exchange. Step 3 : For one river to another After Hurricane Sandy in October 2012, New York recovered its river banks along the East River with the refurbishment of its former South Street Sea Port. This continued to the west along the Hudson River with the redevelopment of public spaces at Brookfield Place Step 4 : World Trade Center This area was transformed after the September 11 attacks. Both remembrance and renewal are combined in the new buildings around the 11/09 memorial – the One World Trade Center (the highest tower in New York), the Oculus, Saint Paul’s Chapel, etc.

This was a great activity that provides a lot of information about how NYC was being built, all the layers on each different parts of the skyline and the surrounding boroughs as well as very interesting facts about the different bridges. Being on the hudson and east rivers, allow for picture perfect moments that will be forever remembered.

This was such a nice cruise! A perfect amount of time full of so much information about Manhattan and the areas around. The views were beautiful, and the afternoon time we ended close to before sunset so it was stunning. Bring a blanket to wear on your lap if going during cold weather.

We had a great time with Frank!!! He told us a lot of interesting information about Brooklyn, its bridge and the stories behind it. Our children and we will never forget this great tour with Frank!!!

I celebrated my wife's birthday in an intimate and warm way with a delicious dinner while we toured NYC at night, to the rhythm of the music. An unforgettable experience.

Thorough tour with amazing views and perfect service.
