Immerse Yourself & Reflect on the Intricate History of this Grand Metropolis

This NYC guided walking tour combines two very significant US attractions, to both national and foreign visitors alike. First, get acquainted with the city on a walking tour of lower Manhattan with CityRove and visit many attractions of historical significance in Downtown New York City. After the guided walk, you’ll visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum and check out spots like the Reflection Pools, the Survivor Tree and the Glade – all significant spots of remembrance and critical thought. We’ll top off our tour with a visit to the One World Observatory for breathtaking views. Located on the 100-102 floors of One World Trade Center, this is the tallest building in the western Hemisphere and a must-see in NYC!

Tour Highlights Include:

This is one of a slate of Radical Walking Tours to expose our visitors and guests to the often forgotten and marginalized people, groups, and movements whose experiences, ideas and activities significantly influenced the evolution and development of life in New York City and beyond, from the days of colonial settlement to the modern era.

Learn about the priceless contribution and experiences of the enslaved peoples, the working classes and the underprivileged who did the heavy lifting to build this city from the ground up.

The National Museum of the American Indians, Battery Park and Wall Street are memorials to the demise of the American Indian tribes at the hands of the European colonists from the 1600s and well into modern times.

In Battery Park, you will enjoy the naturally beautiful gardens and the close-up view of the Manhattan Bay where the waters of the Hudson River from the North West, and the East River meet and mingle with the Atlantic Ocean. See its many monuments that tell of the historical legacy of New York City and much of the US as a whole.

Take in the breathtaking views of a part the coastline of the 'Big Apple'; View the Statue of Liberty, a gift from France to the US in July 1881 to celebrate the end of slavery in the US. The parts of the monument that symbolizes the breaking of the chains of enslavement of African people were later removed by the US.

Visit the New York City One World Observatory & the 9/11 Memorial are a couple of America's most Iconic man-made monumental attractions, to both nationals and foreigners. They encompass a controversial historical legacy, from the transformation of the Islands of Manhattan inhabited by American Indians to today’s astonishing forest of skyscrapers and the raising of this ultra-modern behemoth from the ruins of the original World Trade Center that was destroyed in an attack by foreign militants on “09/11”.

Contrary to popular believe 09/11 was not the first terrorist bombing in New York City. In 1920, a bunch of home bred militants carried out a bombing on Wall Street on September 16th, killing 38 people and injuring hundreds more. No group claimed responsibility for the act, which is still unsolved. Both terror events are is still swirling in controversies, yet 9/11 has changed the world political landscape in dramatic ways.

What You’ll See and Do

This tour commences when you meet your CityRove guide at the Charging Bull (Wall Street Bull), at 26 Broadway. Don’t worry, you will not miss this imposing 7,100 lbs bronze monument that was created in 1989 by the Italian-American artist Arturo Di Modica.

Just 50 feet from the Wall Street Bull, in front of the New York Stock Exchange, is another eye-catching bronze statue – the Fearless Girl. This four-foot statue of a girl sporting a defiant look on her face appeared in Lower Manhattan on the eve of International Women’s Day in March 2017. The sculpture soon became known as the Fearless Girl, captivating New Yorkers and tourists alike. Her original location was right in front of the Charging Bull on Broadway, however, not long after her appearance, she was moved to her present location.

We’ll take pictures with these impressive bronze figures and learn about the New York Stock Exchange. Founded in 1817, this is by far the world’s largest stock exchange and a symbol of American capitalism.

We will visit Zuccotti Park, the privately-owned public space in Lower Manhattan in the middle of the Financial District. The park was the headquarters of the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) Movement,
a protest movement of thousands of mainly young people that began on September 17, 2011. We’ll learn about the movement, whose main objectives were to place on the national political agenda the critical issues of economic inequity, greed, corruption and the undue influence of corporations on government—particularly from the financial services sector. They used civil disobedience to get their point over and the movement was brutally suppressed by the City and the State of New York.

Next we’ll visit Battery Park, also known as The Battery. This 25-acre park facing New York Harbor is true to its heritage as New York’s birthplace. We’ll show you the many monuments in the park and what they represent. You can gaze at the clear views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island from the Battery and take a ride on the SeaGlass Carousel.

For the next leg of the tour we will visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. We’ll walk around the Memorial grounds and contemplate the significance of it all, before checking out the 9/11 Museum and learning about what happened in that location just 20 years ago. See relics and remnants from this American tragedy.

To complete our tour, we’ll take a short walk to the World Trade Center. At the World Trade Center, we’ll ride the Sky Pod to the 102nd floor in just 47 seconds, as we watch centuries of history unfold before our eyes. We’ll learn about the construction of this 1,776-foot-tall behemoth, which is the tallest skyscraper in the western hemisphere and 7th tallest building in the world. Experience the most astonishing panoramic view of New York City and see as far as 45 miles distance in all directions.
