Financial District Tour - Uncle Sam's Tours Tickets

  • About the Alexander Hamilton Financial District Tour – Uncle Sam's New York Tours

    Wall Street is synonymous with many things: fortunes lost and won, protests and prosperity, greed and good. In addition to the Gordon Gekko allusions, Wall Street's rich history stretches back to the early days of our country. On Uncle Sam's Alexander Hamilton Financial District Tour, you'll stroll through much of this history while learning about the building blocks of our modern economy.

    This guided walking tour leads from Battery Park and its excellent view of the Statue of Liberty to the skyscraper canyons of Downtown Manhattan. Dive into early American history as you visit Fraunces Tavern: It was here, in 1783, that George Washington said farewell to his troops at the end of the Revolutionary War.

    Nearby, you'll see the place where Washington was inaugurated: Federal Hall, the national memorial that stands on the site of the first U.S. capitol building. You'll also see the final resting place of Alexander Hamilton, first secretary of the U.S. Treasury.

    After experiencing the rich history of the Financial District, you'll see elements that have propelled the city into the modern era. Check out the world's largest stock exchange: the NYSE, where more than $150 billion is traded every day.

    Revel next in the Canyon of Heroes, a name for lower Broadway in the Financial District, where tons of confetti over the years have greeted ticker-tape parades for sports teams, astronauts and returning GIs.

    Did you know?
    It is generally accepted that Wall Street got its name from a wall on the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement in the 1600s, in what would become Downtown Manhattan.

    Wall Street was the site of the first presidential inauguration, when George Washington took the oath of office on the balcony of Federal Hall in 1789.
  • Anyone eager to learn about the forces that built New York and its financial district into the symbol of global commerce it is today.
