DescriptionWith the success of the hit musical Hamilton, this tour is to help people understand how an illegitimate immigrant finds his way to New York, remakes himself, and becomes one of the most brilliant, charismatic, and controversial founding fathers! Walk in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton through New York City’s oldest neighborhood, the financial district, and discover how this famous New Yorker has his fingerprints on nearly every landmark these streets have to offer. The adventure begins 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 on the eve of a revolution 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. Next, learn how Hamilton’s role as America’s first Secretary of the Treasury ultimately 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, one emblazoned with the name of one of our more recent politicians and local celebrities, Donald Trump. Finally, you 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 George Washington, and you raise your own glass to freedom and to Hamilton. Along the entire route you will 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, inspired many of our wealthy leaders who continue to shape the city and world, and finally, how he wrestled with the questions of wealth, privilege, and power in ways that are just as relevant today as they were in the 1700s.
