This meetup is full of surprises and colorful stories: We'll trace the steps of the "Gangs of New York" in the old Five Points area, and after a jaunt through the edge of Chinatown (checking out the oldest tenement building in NYC), we'll make several stops at some very interesting locations, within the virtually unknown Two Bridges Neighborhood. As we make our way downtown to the South Street Seaport, we'll pass a bar-restaurant that began serving in 1799, and learn about rich history of the seaport which was the world's busiest commercial port in the early-mid 1800's. Stick around for some optional socializing afterwards along with great views of both lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.
