Jane's Walk 2023: Financial District: It Happened Here First (Sunday May 7 at 1 PM)
05/07/2023 01:00 PM - 01:15 PM ET

The Financial District is the area where early European settlers---initially the Dutch, then the English---put down their roots. So it is not surprising that many firsts occurred here: New York City’s first public park, first religious services, first print shop, first financial institutions, first government buildings. We’ll look at these sites, as well as later New York originals. Some were not just the first in the city but the first in the nation. Although many old buildings are gone (historic pictures will be shown for these places), others remain and some have been repurposed, such as former office buildings that are now apartments. You may be amazed at some of New York’s forgotten history!
