Did you know that New York was originally called New Amsterdam? Want to learn about how the Dutch founded New York? Then download a free audio tour on your PC, MP3 player, iPod, iPhone or mobile. While listening you are guided through lower Manhattan to where the Dutch laid the foundation for New York as we know it today.
Eric’s Tip: The tour takes around an hour and a half but is certainly worthwhile. The starting point is all the way Downtown and while listening you walk past important places that you would not think to be that important. It’s a free tour is designed to tell you more about the Dutch contribution to New York and America. The “New Amsterdam Trail” is really worthwhile. Unfortunately, this walk is only available to be downloaded in English.
