Other World Tours: “Shadows of Nieuw Amsterdam”
Apr 13, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $30
Awaken to the mystique of the ground beneath your feet on a walking tour for the intellectually adventurous tourist and lion-hearted city-dweller. The 17th century streets of the oldest settled part of the city, now narrow canyons between the monumental cliff faces of the Financial District, are home to a great number of shadows. Many key events in American history took place in this tiny neighborhood, and much of the residue is still embedded in its soil.
As we peel back layers of history in this seldom-visited part of the city, layers of meaning about who we are are also revealed.
