Specify your preferred departure time when booking your tour. When the date and time arrives, meet your private tour guide at the Harlem Spiritual Terminal, located at 690 8th Avenue, between 43rd and 44th streets.
With your private party and dedicated guide, depart in an SUV or minivan, depending on the size of your group, and head for the shore. The first leg of your tour is a cruise to the Statue of Liberty and the Ellis Island Museum of Immigration, both important landmarks in the history of the American immigrant experience.
Back on land, visit the New York Stock Exchange, Wall Street, and the 9/11 Memorial on a walking tour. Head to the Lower East Side to peruse the Tenement Museum, which details the history of the immigrants in that area during the early 19th century. Walk through the neighborhood to explore cultural and architectural influence from Latino, Jewish, Italian, Irish, German, Asian, and African immigrants. Witness the hip bars and restaurants that populate the East Village, with roots in every culture.
