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.

Thank you Larry for the great tour! 3 hours flew by as Larry shared his personal interest and research in the topic. I've walked by the area for years and still managed to learn a ton. Great for visitors and native New Yorkers.

It was amazing to spent time with Larry on this tour! He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the black history of Manhattan. He was able to answer all of our questions, and went into discussions and his views outside of the main highlights of the tour. Extremely personable, flexible and sweet, I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Don't hesitate to take Larry's thoughtful tour! It's great for anyone interested in learning a fuller history of NYC - one that does not omit a part of the population, the enslaved Africans, and their essential contributions to the city. The tour is in a pretty small area (so you won't get tired in terms of walking), but one dense with historic sites and events. One of Larry's larger points - that so much of the hidden history is in front of our eyes, all we need to do is pay attention - is a valuable reminder!

Lawrence was a great host, easy to interact with and made us feel comfortable immediately. I learned a lot about the history of the city that I don’t think I would have learned on routine internet searches. Very entertaining, definitely recommend the tour to the curious!

This was amazing!! For starters, I can’t believe thus experience is only $25! Lawrence is incredibly personable, a great story teller, obviously passionate about the subject matter and very inspiring. He took his time, leaving ample room for my questions and inquiries. I feel incredibly enriched by his tour. I am definitely looking for the book he is working on for my personal collection.

Lawrence was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Lower Manhattan and the enslaved African Amercan's who lived there. He lent a personal touch as a lifetime New Yorker and my husband and I walked away having learned a lot. Great value!
