This Walking Tour Takes Participants to a Former Station of the Underground Railroad
Inside Out Tours — an award-winning Black- and woman-owned company — offers several walking tours around Lower Manhattan, and in particular a much-lauded one that educates participants about African-American history in New York City.
The NYC Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour covers how the Underground Railroad was formed, with visits to downtown sites including a former station of the Underground Railroad (i.e. the corner of Wall Street and Broad streets, above), Trinity Church and the landmarked African Burial Ground. Tour guides will also shed light on the early colonial history of NYC and demonstrate how African-Americans helped create the city we know today.
The NYC Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour is available as a private tour or as a group tour happening every Wednesday at 11 a.m. and every Saturday at 1 p.m. Tickets are $39 for adults and $32 for children and can be purchased here. The tour is also included in the New York Pass, the Go City All-inclusive Pass and the Explorer Pass.
In addition to the NYC Slavery and Underground Railroad Tour, the company offers a Wall Street Walking Tour that showcases the political and financial histories of Wall Street, as well as a Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour. More information about these tours is available at Inside Out Tours.Tags: inside out tours, underground railroad, walking tours
