Great Women of NY Tour
Discover a different side of New York history on this walking tour of Lower Manhattan. Meet your guide in the morning at the National Museum of the American Indian, and explore the ways in which women have shaped New York’s history and identity. See sights like Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial, and more, and learn about the bold and intrepid women who made the city what it is today, from trailblazing writers and suffragettes to soldiers and September 11th heroes.
What to Expect
Starting at 10am at the bottom of the steps in front of the Museum of the American Indian at 1 Bowling Green, you will begin your journey on our Great Women of NY Tour. Women have shaped every aspect of the city’s growth since before it was founded. This tour explores the pivotal role women have played in the development of NYC and tells the hidden stories of the female pioneers whose contributions made this city into a great metropolis. We begin with the story of the matriarchs of the Lenape Indians, the original Native American inhabitants. We then tell the stories of women trailblazers including the only women to start a village in colonial America, the first woman to be injured in fighting during the Revolutionary war, enslaved women, woman suffragists, Wall Street pioneers, religious leaders, ground breaking writers, social justice crusaders, philanthropists, and 9/11 heroes.
