A wee bit of Irish New York with a tall Lepruchaun


5 miles easy pace, maybe 6
If you want REAL Irish History . . . this is the WRONG walk for you.

If you want a few fun facts with a bit of blarney, and some of those facts actually happened, this walk may be for you.

We begin at the Staten Island Ferry because of the bathrooms, outside in the front.

We will start walking around the Manhattan Waterfront viewing Ellis Island, Castle Garden (Castle Clinton National Monument), Ground Zero and the Irish Hunger Memorial (An Gorta Mor -- The Great Hunger). We will share the connection to the Irish.

We leave the shore and head to Five Points, OLD St. Patrick's Cathedral (Mulberry Street), Tammany Hall and we end at McSorley's Old Ale House.

We will NOT visit St. Patrick's Catherdral (5th and 50th) or the Irish American Historical Society (5th and 80th). Why? They are uptown from Tammany Hall and McSorley's is downtown.
