    This tour begins at the famous Wall Street Bull statue, where you’ll meet your CityRove tour guide. Learn the story behind this impressive 7,000 pound bronze bull, created by Italian-American sculptor, Arturo Di Modica. Learn the dramatic story behind it and what it symbolizes for Americans. We’ll snap some pics with this famous statue before heading to Battery Park.

    Battery Park, sits at the southernmost tip of Manhattan island and boasts many historical monuments and lush foliage. The Battery, as it’s also known, overlooks Manhattan Bay where the waters of the Hudson River and the East River meet and mingle with the Atlantic Ocean. The Lenape people called the Hudson River Mahicannituck (“The River that flows Both Ways”). This 25-acre park has great views of New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty. Learn a little-known fact about New York’s iconic monument which was a gift from France to the US in July of 1884 to celebrate the end of slavery in the US. Parts of the monument that symbolize the breaking of the chains of enslavement of African people were later removed by the US.

    Before we move on from Battery Park, you can take a spin on the SeaGlass Carousel! Both kids and adults enjoy this aquatic-themed carousel, which was inspired by the Battery’s history as the original location of the New York Aquarium.

    Next, we’ll take a stroll down Wall Street and learn the story of September 16, 1920, when a bunch of home bred militants carried out a bombing on Wall Street, leaving 38 casualties and hundreds more injured. No group claimed responsibility for the crime, which remains unsolved to this day.

    We will visit Zuccotti Park, the privately-owned public park which was the headquarters of the 2011 Occupy Wall Street movement. Learn something about this movement for socio-economic justice before we visit some of the most gorgeous architecture in downtown Manhattan, including Trinity Cathedral and St. Paul’s Chapel.

    After taking in the beauty of St. Paul’s Chapel, one of New York City’s oldest buildings, we’ll head to the Oculus. This transit hub was designed by acclaimed Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and cost four billion dollars to build, making it the most expensive train stop in the world!

    Now to the innovatively designed 9/11 Memorial. We’ll walk around the Memorial grounds and contemplate the significance of it all.

    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!

    Our tour ends after the One World Observatory visit. Don’t fret though, there’s plenty more to do nearby to continue your adventure!
