NY See’s Titanic Tour – New York is a four-hour guided walking tour led by Titanic expert Dave Gardner.
Experience and learn about the tragedy; the competition between Cunard Lines and White Star Lines, David Sarnoff’s telegraph claim, the iceberg collision, the conditions that night, the ship in pop culture, the immense size of the vessel, the ship’s luxurious amenities, the overlooked ice warnings, and survivors. At the Titanic – New York tours end you will stand at the foot of Pier 54 where the S.S. Carpathia docked, bearing the 712 surviving souls of the disaster.
The Titanic tour begins on Astor Place where the old Wanamaker’s department store once stood. The tour proceeds on foot past buildings and churches in the West Village that have connections to the Titanic, We also visit the Jane Hotel where the surviving crewmembers were housed, and then later participated in the initial inquiry into the ship’s sinking. It is hard to fathom the deep connections that New York City has to this lost ship, some apparent and some only illuminated by a skillful and talented guide.
Almost everywhere one looks; there are remarkable connections to the ship and her passengers. There are tall buildings to compare size to, hospitals and hotels where survivors were taken, and churches where relatives prayed for the souls of their lost loved ones.
Dave has conducted the tour for authors, historians, colleagues, and others interested in the ship’s lore. The tour has also been presented to great acclaim with relatives of Titanic survivors in attendance.
With an acknowledged expert as your guide, you will journey back through time. Try to imagine the air crackling with the news that the Titanic had sunk with great loss of life, imagine the sadness of friends and relatives as they await the Carpathia, praying that their loved ones had survived the tragedy.
Join Dave as he recreates those moments that continue to resonate to this day. He compares it to a song that people recognize but may not actually know the words. “…I’m the musician who steps up and actually plays it!” – you know the tale, now come hear the story.
