Since 1609, the world has been attracted to lower Manhattan. The Dutch came, the British came and then the United States government set up shop here. Eventually the American government, with a constitution and a Bill of Rights in place, moved out and commerce (amongst other things) moved in. See the sights of the first congress, where George Washington took the oath of office and became the first president of the United States, The New York Stock Exchange, the Elizabeth Ann Seton Shrine, Trinity Church, Saint Paul's Chapel and the World Trade Center site. We also go to the Brooklyn Bridge

Gary Dennis was born and raised in Manhattan In a family of competitive know-it-all's. In 2006 Gary launched a one-man effort to rename 103rd Street Humphrey Bogart Place, in honor of the late actor who grew up there, which culminated in a street renaming (a big deal in this city), a plaque on the building memorializing the structure as the childhood home of Mr. Bogart, and a renaming event which was attended by various New York City officials, Lauren Bacall and her son, Stephen Bogart. For his efforts, Gary was the subject of numerous articles in The New York Times. In the Fall of 2006 his store, Movie Place, became the victim of greedy landlords who more than doubled the store's rent and Gary was forced to close the business. Gary became licensed as an official New York City tour guide. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
