Það sem verður gert

This unique three-part, 3 hours, walking tour will begin where Manhattan began - at the National Museum of the American Indian. Each part of the tour will last approximately 1 hour. This first leg of the tour will start in the Financial District. Specifically, Bowling Green, where the first enslaved Africans started building the infrastructure of the city, and end at Wall St when the enslaved Africans were brought and sold. The walking distance will be approximately 3/4 of a mile and we will cover about 10 sites.
The second leg of the tour will continue in the Financial District. We will walk up Wall St to Federal Hall - a site next to a famous free African who owned and operated a famous Oyster House in 1825; We will discuss the NY Stock Exchange. This walking distance will be about 1 mile and we will cover about 10 sites along the way.
The last leg will start around the Brooklyn Bridge, including the African Burial Ground National Monument (entrance is optional); Depending on the interaction, we will end at the infamous 5-Points area at Pearl St. The walking distance will be approximately 3/4 of a mile and cover about 10 sites.
Depending on the mood and convenience of the group we can stop for lunch, or a snack, at any time. Each location is based on a specific chapter in my book. There will be 4-5 restroom breaks. Children of all ages are welcome! :)

Greetings! I'm a native New Yorker, a self-published author of the book, "You Are Here - A Geographical History of Enslaved and Free Africans in Manhattan: 1613 - 1865," and a certified NYC tour guide. For the past 2 years, I've given presentations about my book at schools and community organizations. I've lived in all five boroughs of NYC, but I claim Manhattan. I've worked in Manhattan as a Paralegal for over 20 years, I was educated here, I've visited most of NYC's museums, I've partied and experienced the nightlife here, and I survived the 9/11 tragedy at the WTC. This city, past & present represents my soul's work; I would like to share my love for the city with this fascinating African American tour of NYC.

Staðsetning

This fun-filled educational tour will cover the areas south of Brooklyn Bridge and the areas east of Broadway. Some of the sites on this tour are famous, i.e. Brooklyn Bridge, Federal Hall, Fraunces Tavern, South Street Seaport, etc. and some are lesser-known. However, out of the 20 sites, they all have a connection with African American history that few people are aware of - this is what makes this tour unique.

This tour was awesome! Absolutely AMAZING! It was by far the best part of our trip. We learned so much and Lawrence was a great storyteller. You could tell he was so passionate about the history; it didn’t feel like a 3 hour tour. We were captivated from start to finish! Book this tour, I highly recommend!

This was the best tour I’ve been on. I highly recommend Lawrence if you want to learn more about the true history of New York. He was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. For anyone wondering about accessibility, it was about 3 miles, give or take.

I would recommend this tour for anyone that comes to New York. The guide is very knowledgeable about what he’s talking about and relates it to a lot of the common things we know from New York to it’s deepest roots. I can now say that I truly know what Manhattan is about and a lot of the things that we walk past are actually very important artifacts that make New York a lot more interesting. So for sure 10/10 would recommend this to future tourists that come to New York or even the people that are from there !!! You’ll surely learn cool facts.
