Visit historical landmarks including Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and the House of Morgan. Pose for a photo with the famous Charging Bull, a powerful symbol of our economy. Examine subtle scars in a granite wall, the only reminders of the first terrorist attack in New York, carried out by horse-drawn cart.
Contemplate the solemn quiet of Trinity Church, burial place of American giants like Alexander Hamilton, and located in the former shadow of the Twin Towers. Pay your respects to those lost on 9/11 beside the flowing waters of Reflecting Absence, breath-taking fountains built in the footprints of the Twin Towers. Hear heroic tales of firefighters and first responders who struggled to save as many as they could. Marvel at the majestic height of One World Trade, symbolically rising from the ashes to represent the unwavering human spirit.

At the end of your tour, gaze over the waters of the bay and share what they first saw, the Statue of Liberty raising her lamp beside the golden shore.
