Your private walking tour begins next to New York's oldest park, Bowling Green, where your guide will discuss its connection the Revolutionary War. You will also learn about the famous Charging Bull sculpture and find out why it's not actually on Wall Street. You will also see the Custom House, considered one of the most beautiful classical buildings in the city.
