WeWalk: Behind the Scenes of Opening the Way

Opening the Way is a walking tour celebrating women's history in downtown Manhattan. It is a multifaceted new project developed by the award-winning nonprofit organization Women's eNews. The walk honors the achievements of women such as Margaret Sanger, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Ida B. Wells -- 21 women in all. This blog has been created to update fans of the walk on its exciting developments and expansion. Please join us in revitalizing history that has been ignored or forgotten!

NYC & Co.: Discovering Hidden History and Opportunities

Opening the Way is excited to announce its new partnership with NYC & Company, the city’s largest marketing, tourism and partnership organization. With an expected spike in tourism this year due to the 10th anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks and the ongoing development of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum, we hope that this collaboration will offer new opportunities to reach out to a greater number of constituents.

NYC & Co. offers the best of travel in New York City, including suggestions on entertainment, attractions, dining, transportation, and accommodations. It’s a useful resource for both tourists and locals alike to go beyond the major landmarks and explore the lesser known gems of the city. As New York regains its title as the number one tourist destination in America, sites like this one are integral to getting the best deals in cultural events and the arts. We anticipate that this pairing will allow us to network with other historical venues and open the door to bigger events.
