Colonial gentlemen used to "bowl" here, at New York City's oldest park, paying one peppercorn per year for the privilege.

This Bull is a symbol of Wall Street however, it’s become a very busy spot. If you want a picture it’ll take a long time to do. Tour buses will stop for this. It’s a a statue of a bull, a bit larger than what...More

Located near Charging Bull and Wall street, it is just a park. Nothing much to see here except Charging Bull.

We stopped here during a break on a hop on/hop off tour of Manhattan. Its a nice area, but it was way too crowded. Don't even try to get near the bull, the crowds were out of control there.

If your in the area it's another spot on the tourist maps to have a quick look at. Nicely laid out garden with some impressive architecture overlooking the green.

This is a small park next to the Charging Bull. It used to be a real bowling lawn during the Dutch's times long time ago. During our visit, there were very nice orange flowers blooming in the park.

We walked in the evening to take some photos and see Wall Street. But after we reached we decided to go back. Because the area itself seems quite not safe

Quaint little park in the Financial District consisting of plentiful benches and a lovely fountain, in the warm climate, surrounded by beautiful flowers. I sat here many times during my break, as such you'll mainly see corporate workers letting off some steam here. For travelers,...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
