ABOUT THE TOUR
For centuries, NYC’s economic powerhouse was fueled by the Seaport. Thousands of ships and merchants sailed to the city, establishing NYC’s place as the center of trade for the western hemisphere. But the Seaport has a hidden past, one of jealousy and greed.
On this tour, you will explore the historic Seaport District and see why it was once known as the “Wickedest Ward.” From jilted lovers, to blood feuds, to the night that Jack the Ripper found a new victim in the brothels of New York, the Seaport is full of sensational and gruesome tales to keep you on the edge of your seat!
You will discover the registered historic Seaport District, which includes some of the oldest buildings left in Manhattan – and some of which hide dark secrets of the city’s past. The tour meets at the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse, at the corner of Fulton Street and Water Street.
