On this walking tour, we’ll discover the life of pirates and prostitutes living in the scrappy Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, long before New York was New York. Step into the wooden shoes of the early settlers and see what life was like being an employee rather than a colonist. Based on exciting new research taking place over the last 35 years, we’ll show you a brand new side of this brave new world like you’ve never seen before. From Native American raids, to the origin of the cookie, to everyone’s least favorite peg-legged governor, you’ll see it all.
We start this tour at Castle Clinton National Monument in Battery Park, the Southern most tip of Manhattan, and then work our way up to Wall Street, exploring everything in between!
