The Alexander Hamilton Financial District Walking Tour explores New York City from its founding as a Dutch settlement to its rise as the world's financial capital.
Your guide will bring the city to life through the eyes of Alexander Hamilton, whose ascension from a penniless young immigrant to becoming our nation's first Secretary of the Treasury epitomizes the immigrant spirit that defines New York and the United States.
You will walk amid the staggering culture of money and the historical treasures of the world's financial epicenter. Witness where Alexander Hamilton sowed the seeds of prosperity as the country's first Treasury Secretary. Stand near the very spot where George Washington was inaugurated President. Learn how the Dutch settled in the area by establishing a trading post they called New Amsterdam that over time morphed into the home of today's most powerful financial institutions, including the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve Bank where billions are staked each day. From the historical legacies of Battery Park to the teeming streets of America's premier business address, you'll come away with a deep understanding of how immigration, war, money and power all converged here to forge the Wall Street we know today.
