Au programme

This unique three-part, 3 hours, walking tour will begin where Manhattan began - at the National Museum of the American Indian. Each part of the tour will last approximately 1 hour. This first leg of the tour will start in the Financial District. Specifically, Bowling Green, where the first enslaved Africans started building the infrastructure of the city, and end at Wall St when the enslaved Africans were brought and sold. The walking distance will be approximately 3/4 of a mile and we will cover about 10 sites.
The second leg of the tour will continue in the Financial District. We will walk up Wall St to Federal Hall - a site next to a famous free African who owned and operated a famous Oyster House in 1825; We will end the tour at the South Street Seaport - a site where enslaved Africans arrived on slave ships. This walking distance will be about 1 mile and we will cover about 10 sites along the way.
The last leg will start around the Brooklyn Bridge, including the African Burial Ground National Monument (entrance is optional); We end at the infamous 5-Points area at Pearl St. The walking distance will be approximately 3/4 of a mile and cover about 10 sites.
Depending on the mood and convenience of the group we can stop for lunch or a snack at any time. Each location is based on a specific chapter in my book.

Greetings! I'm a native New Yorker, a self-published author of the book, "You Are Here - A Geographical History of Enslaved and Free Africans in Manhattan: 1613 - 1865," and a certified NYC tour guide. For the past 2 years, I've given presentations about my book at schools and community organizations. I've lived in all five boroughs of NYC, but I claim Manhattan. I've worked in Manhattan as a Paralegal for over 20 years, I was educated here, I've visited most of NYC's museums, I've partied and experienced the nightlife here, and I survived the 9/11 tragedy at the WTC. This city, past & present represents my soul's work; I would like to share my love for the city with this fascinating African American tour of NYC.

Destinations

This fun-filled educational tour will cover the areas south of Brooklyn Bridge and the areas east of Broadway. Some of the sites on this tour are famous, i.e. Brooklyn Bridge, Federal Hall, Fraunces Tavern, South Street Seaport, etc. and some are lesser-known. However, out of the 30+ sites, they all have a connection with African American history that few people are aware of - this is what makes this tour unique.

Wow! What an amazing tour. Larry knows his stuff. I learned so much about African-American history in New York. Larry also provided very helpful visuals and anecdotes and amazing stories about people who’s stories need to be told. Definitely do this tour. I am a native yorker and loved it! I brought my 20 yo niece who was visiting abs she lived it as well. Plus we got in our 10,000 steps lol.

I loved this experience. I learned so much from this tour and the host not only was knowledgeable but you could tell he really loved doing these tours. You learn so much about how enslaved Africans really built Manhattan. I am bringing my niece this summer so she can learn her history at a young age since they don't teach this in schools. He definitely needs to incorporate this in NY C school curriculum. Its necessary knowledge. I would do this all over again, that's how good it was

Larry is a great host, well versed in his subject, presenting primary sources for the information shared. This tour is necessary for everyone as its shines light on much of this area's history that is hidden in plain sight. All of it and more is documented in his book- which is an added bonus. Well worth the time!
