Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Ice-age glaciers, Native Americans, Dutch traders, British Redcoats, and the Underground Railroad have all left their mark on New York City. Their stories can be found in the names of our streets, our architecture, and our parks. 

Native American culture is celebrated in special programs throughout the five boroughs.

All programs are historic walking tours unless otherwise noted.  Certain popular programs have limited space and may require registration.
