About the Tour
This self-guided audio and GPS tour begins near Fraunces Tavern, where American revolutionaries plotted their rebellion against the British Empire over 200 years ago.
Continue on to the “best bar in the world” and hear how immigrants from Ireland and other European countries totally reshaped early New York. Then visit the extravagant Alexander Hamilton Custom House — you can probably guess how it got its name!
Next on the Wall Street walking tour, you’ll head to Wall Street and meet the famous Charging Bull sculpture face to face. Hear the unusual story of how this piece of guerilla artwork found a permanent home here.
The tour route continues past New York’s famous Trinity Church, a towering landmark featured in Hollywood films that served as an impromptu shelter during 9/11.
Then, head to the New York Stock Exchange to learn about the immense amount of money that passes through here every second!
Looking for a more controversial landmark? You’ll find it here on Wall Street, owned by Donald Trump and the site of more than a few lively protests over the years. Hear about the folks who rent business space here, including some seriously seedy characters.
Then, stop by the Federal Reserve, home to the largest cache of gold bars in the world. Just across from this, you’ll see Liberty Tower, which once housed German spies!
Check out the famous Red Cube sculpture on your way to Zuccotti Park, which served as the headquarters of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Learn all about the movement and what it hoped to accomplish, then continue on to the somber 9/11 Memorial and triumphant One World Trade Center, one of the tallest buildings in the world.
Despite all the new constructions, some of this district’s oldest roots still remain. You’ll see those next, at Saint Paul’s Chapel, built way back in 1766! Finally, head to City Hall Park to visit the gorgeous New York City Hall, Tweed Courthouse, and hear about the corruption which plagued the construction of each. The Wall Street walking tour concludes near City Hall.
