Walking Tour of Underground New York

Please Join Bob Pisani and Angela Grande for the 11th edition of their always popular, Annual Walking Tour.  Our day will begin at noon for brunch at Malthouse an “All American Tavern” located in the Financial District. Next, we will be treated to a guided New York subway walking tour by Untapped NY.   You will discover the fascinating beginnings of the New York City subway, and explore spaces even the most seasoned commuter might not know about. We will discover the story of the very first subway which was built illegally under the cover of night and many other surprising stories. We will also see abandoned stations that riders unknowingly pass by every day, including the famed City Hall Station. The subway tour will end in one of the latest transportation hubs of lower Manhattan.  Following the tour, we will then travel to Brooklyn Heights for a dinner in the downstairs speakeasy bar “Le Boudoir” at the excellent French bistro, Chez Moi. Tying into our subway theme, the bar contains the room that held coal that was used to power the trains for the world’s first subway tunnel, which was built in 1844 along Atlantic Avenue.
