As you make your way from the Battery, up Broadway, through Wall Street and to the 9/11 Memorial you will follow the growth of New York from its humble beginnings as a tiny Dutch trading post to its iconic position as the world’s trading center. Stroll through Battery Park and learn about Castle Clinton and “The Sphere” and walk up historic Broadway and the Canyon of Heroes. Learn why The Charging Bull, also known as the Wall Street Bull, is not actually on Wall Street! See the famous New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall, J.P. Morgan building & 40 Wall Street and learn the amazing history of Trinity Church and the famous people buried in her cemetery.
As we head finally to the 9/11 Memorial, be moved by the stunning imagery of our fearless firefighters on a magnificent bronze mural at the Fireman’s Memorial and take time to quietly reflect upon the gentle beauty of the 9/11 memorial pools and waterfalls and learn of the Trade Center’s past, present and future as you stand on what was once known as “Ground Zero”.
