Event Type Walk/Hike Description Founding Father John Jay was a native son of New York City, but the city he knew was not the metropolis we know today. This tour takes us along many of the same streets John Jay walked as we visit locations where he lived, worked, played, and prayed. Plan to walk approximately 2 miles during this 3-hour tour. Water bottles are recommended. Sponsoring Organization John Jay Homestead State Historic Site
