Walking Tour of Lower Manhattan with Kevin Baker: America the Ingenious

Saturday November 5: 2:00PM 4:00PM

Author Kevin Baker will take you on an interactive tour of Lower Manhattan which will feature several of the most extraordinary inventions in America the Ingenious, and provide a fascinating look at New York history. You will visit the site where the entire federal government used to be housed in a single, three-storey building; pay your respects at Alexander Hamilton's grave, go inside what was the tallest (and most beautiful) skyscraper in the world for twenty years, check out where all the news was made fit to print, go down to the waterfront, view the damage caused by the worst terrorist attack in the United States before 9/11, learn how the Brooklyn Bridge almost became a catastrophe, and witness the greatest piece of graft in the city's history.

Buy a copy of America the Ingenious or a $15 gift card in-store at the Strand's main floor registers or at the door to attend. This walking tour will meet in the Rare Book Room on the Strand's 3rd floor, accessible via the store elevator or at 826 Broadway.
