Relive the Great Crash of 1929 on the Museum's annual crash-themed walking tour of Lower Manhattan. This unique walking tour, now in its 34th year, is the only regularly-scheduled event that commemorates the Great Crash of 1929, the Panic of 1907 and the 1987 stock market collapse. It also delves into the political, financial, real estate and architectural history of Wall Street and New York City.

The tour shows that despite such adversities as the Great Fires of 1776 and 1835, financial panics of the 19th century, the 1920 Wall Street explosion, the Crash of 1929, the stock market collapse of 1987, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack and the financial crisis of 2008, New York and Wall Street have always recovered their position as the world's financial capital.

James S. Kaplan, an attorney and political historian, and Richard M. Warshauer, a commercial real estate executive and Wall Street aficionado, will conduct the tour under the auspices of the Museum of American Finance.

Tour meets outside the US Custom House and costs $15 per person; tickets must be purchased at least 24 hours in advance. MoAF members receive one free walking tour per year.
