Uncovering Lower Manhattan’s Scottish Roots

Janes Walk

Led By Heather Quist and Camilla Hellman, American-Scottish Foundation

Join us as we trace the contributions of Scots via current buildings and forgotten locations, including the first stock exchange, pirates, oligarchs, the street of foreign businesses, the grand hall of vegetables, the glamorous home of ocean liners, and the architects who designed them. Representatives of the American-Scottish Foundation, a New York-based cultural and educational non-profit, will lead an easy 1-hour walk.
