It is here, as much as anywhere, where American history started. It's where the first US Congress assembled and produced the Bill of Rights and where President George Washington took his first oath of office. It's here where the world's most important stock exchange and one of the most famous bridges stand. And it is here where an unspeakable tragedy took place and where a rebirth is underway.

Who built the famous wall for which Wall Street is named? Who built the fort, laid the roads, cleared the land, tended flock and field, and loaded ships in the burgeoning port town? Labor Day, created by the labor movement in the late 19th century, honors the achievements of American workers. But what about the contributions of enslaved Africans to the northern center of mercantilism?   The National Park Service hosts this special Labor Day presentation as we honor the unsung men and women who literally built the town and city and laid the foundation of the world’s greatest metropolis. Topics include: identifying where enslaved Africans came from? What types of work they performed and the physical evidence from the African Burial Ground on the effects of enslaved labor on the human body.

Although world famous, Harlem may be New York's best kept secret with some of the city's best architecture, food, music and people. Harlem's history is also one of the city's most dramatic, having gone through many ethnic, cultural and socioeconomic changes over the past roughly 400 years, which have resulted in a diverse array of places of worship, theaters, homes and eating establishments.

Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

For some performers, the show must go on… even after death! The Ghosts on Broadway Tour, led by a veteran New York City talent agent, will introduce you to these notorious theater legends who appear after the lights go dim. You’ll hear about the Broadway impresario who haunts the theater that bears his name. His apparition shows up on opening nights to congratulate the cast or “pinch” the leading ladies’ bottom. Jazz age parties are heard almost nightly from his long abandoned apartment over his theater.
