Wall Street, New York City: 110 reviews and 191 photos
The walk brings us to a three-story brick Georgian mansion known as Fraunces Tavern.
In 1762 Samuel Fraunces purchased the building where then it became a well-known gathering place among his friends. Many events of great significance occurred at Fraunces Tavern such as in 1768 where the first New York Chamber of Commerce was born here. But the most often remembered was happening in the Museum?s Long Room on December 4, 1783, where George Washington made his farewell speech to his officers. Now it?s a restaurant with a small museum.
