My grand-daughter thoroughly enjoyed the brisk walk and viewing of the ships. Being a native New Yorker and coming back to visit this side of town was great. It used to be run-down and unseemly, but now with all the new shops and restaurants, it...More

South Street Seaport used to be a vibrant area in lower Manhattan, but then hurricane Sandy pretty much destroyed the Seaport Pier with the large mall, and it's eerily quiet there now. We went on a windy day, and while there seems to be some...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
