Description

Embark on a shared group or private tour to discover the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the most charismatic and controversial founding fathers. Explore New York City’s oldest neighborhood, the financial district, and learn how Hamilton has his fingerprints on nearly every historic landmark. Begin the adventure at Trinity Church, where Hamilton was buried as a result of one of the darkest days in American political history. Learn how Hamilton arrived in America and quickly became one of the most influential minds of his day, only to be shot dead before his 50th birthday. Stop by Zuccotti Park and uncover how more recent revolutionary movements like Occupy Wall Street trace their roots to Hamilton’s ambitious plans for American prosperity. Learn how Hamilton’s role as America’s first Secretary of the Treasury led to the creation of the New York Stock Exchange. Across the street sits Federal Hall, where Hamilton looked on as George Washington was sworn in as the nation’s first president and where he served in the first cabinet. Then check out the two Wall Street skyscrapers that still stand as reminders of the epic feud between Hamilton and Burr. You will also see one emblazoned with the name of one of the United States' more recent presidents. Stop by Hamilton's graveside at the Trinity Church to pay your respects to this legendary figure. Finally, make your way down the first paved street in New York City to one of the oldest bars in town, where Hamilton himself used to drink with the nation's first president, George Washington. During the tour, discover not only Hamilton’s history in New York but also how he came to epitomize the American Dream, created the modern world you live in today, and inspired many wealthy leaders who continue to shape the city and world.
