NYEA students visited Fraunces Tavern at 54 Pearl Street in downtown Manhattan.  Fraunces Tavern is one of the oldest buildings in Manhattan and was constructed in 1719.  Students visited the upstairs museum, where they discovered much about the history of Colonial America and the revolution. Specific topics on the tour included the evolution of the American flag, period dress, and espionage during the revolution.

On December 4th, 1793 George Washington bid farewell to his officers in the second-floor dining room at Fraunces Tavern, while celebrating the British departure from the colonies on November 25th.
After the museum, students enjoyed fried chicken sandwiches at FUKU and dessert at Milkbar.
