Did you know that in 1776, anyone that lived above 14th Street wasn't living in New York City? Join us as we virtually explore the original NYC of downtown Manhattan and learn about the dramatic & fascinating story of how the famous Brooklyn Bridge was constructed.
If you're like us and haven't had the opportunity to see Broadway's hit musical Hamilton, this is our version of bringing it to life for you! Our wonderful tour guide and history professor at New Jersey City University, Tim White, will bring to life stories of famous individuals like Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. We will also discuss the lives of Angelica and Eliza Schuyler and the role these women played during the revolution.
While this tour is completely online, we hope to inspire you to go visit these areas with newfound perspective once this crisis is behind us!
