Brooklyn Bridge Walking Tour

Experience the beauty and history of Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge at an easy pace with one of New York’s best tour guides.

New York City began in lower Manhattan as the Dutch colony Nieuw-Amsterdam in 1626. It grew from the Battery Park area, a quarter-mile north to what is now Wall Street. After the British took control in 1664, New York grew northward, eventually spanning the entire 13-mile length of the island. The Old New York Tour begins and ends at the historic South Street Seaport, once the hub of New York`s maritime trading empire.

Olde New York hotspots:

  • Battery Park
  • Financial District – Wall Street
  • Trinity Church
  • World Trade Center area

Brooklyn Bridge Walking Tour

The Seaport was once known as Sailortown, a rough area largely defined by the Irish-American and African-American communities. Germans and German Jews began to arrive in the 1850s, settling farther uphill in the Lower East Side. Italians came streaming in between 1861 and 1930.

A few Chinese came during the late 19th century; their numbers rose quickly after 1965. New York`s Chinatown is the largest Chinese-speaking district outside of China. You`ll see evidence of the great diaspora in our two-hour tour that includes the Brooklyn Bridge and much of the surrounding area.
