This unique guided walking tour will take you clear across Lower Manhattan from the Hudson River to the East River.
We will honor the history and contributions of the many immigrants from Ireland who have called New York City home and participants will learn about NYC’s rich tradition of welcoming immigrants from all over the world.
After a visit to the Irish Hunger Memorial, we’ll traverse the extraordinary Tribeca neighborhood and Civic Center and then visit the former “Five Points” area depicted in the movie “Gangs of New York”. We will complete this experience with a visit to New York City’s oldest residential neighborhood, the South Street Seaport Historic District, and learn how it was once the world’s busiest commercial port.
At the seaport, there are plenty of places to shop, eat and drink, and you can choose to pay a visit to the Maritime Museum.
Tour led by Hank Orenstein, Licensed NYC Tour Guide, Urban Historian and Licensed Real Estate Broker.
