The Basics

Founded 70-odd years after Dutch settlers first arrived in what is now New York City, Trinity Church is one of the nation’s earliest places of worship. Granted a charter by King William III, the first church building debuted in 1698. Destroyed in the Great New York Fire of 1776, it was soon rebuilt before being reconstructed again in 1846. The version that stands today was designed by architect Richard Upjohn and is renowned for its grand, Gothic Revival spire (which, for a time, made it the tallest building in the United States).

Trinity Church features on numerous New York City tours, including bus tours, walking tours, and driving tours. It’s also visited on Hamilton-themed excursions and 9/11 memorial tours.

Financial district...bulls balls

Statue of Liberty Monument, 9/11 Memorial and Wall Street Tour
Our tour guide was wonderful. Personable and fun with a lot of knowledge about the history of NYC. Before the tour was most looking forward to statue of liberty but with what she offered about financial district I think that was equally as enjoyable. Also you should tell her to touch the bulls balls probably nothing financial will come of it but you never know.

Wall Street Insider Tour with a Finance Professional
Our guide Jared was excellent! He was fun and had lots of great stories about Wall Street. He provided a bit of education around the banking industry as well and had some great movie references (if there is a movie about Wall Street you want to talk about Jared is all in). I don't do a lot of guided tours but this was a cool experience that I'd recommend to anyone.
