[In-person tour] What’s left of old Dutch New York? Where were the windmills, the canals, the first church, and the fort? Where did the girls go to do the laundry, and where did the boys go to graze the cattle? Join Joe Svehlak for a look at New York’s Dutch roots in Downtown Manhattan over four centuries ago. Walking downtown’s old streets and the original shoreline, we’ll learn about our Dutch legacy of commerce and tolerance. Hear about the diverse immigrant population, the problems they faced, and the part they played in the foundation of our democratic society.
In-person tours are limited to 20 attendees and are held outdoors. Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore ask that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status. Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation. Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.
MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.
