Financial District

Rate this item
(0 votes)

Lower Manhattan is home to the Financial District high finance, power breakfasts and most of Manhattan's history and home to Wall Street, City Hall, the much-filmed courthouse and many, many government offices. Federal Hall National Monument is across from the Stock Exchange where George Washington accepted his presidency.

In an area defined by skyscraper towers and narrow, cobblestone streets, standout American icons are the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, Trinity Church, St. Paul's Chapel, the Canyon of Heroes, home to the famous ticker-tape parades. But the most recognizable site is the site of the lost World Trade Center. On that site, the 9/11 memorial was built to honor those who were killed in the September 11, 2001, and February 26, 1993, terror attacks. It's a place of solemn remembrance and quiet reflection.

If you're tired of seeing and walking on pavement, take a stroll through the parkland along the riverfront, from Battery Park, the jump-off point for boat tours to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, as well as for the Staten Island Ferry, north to Chelsea. You will have excellent views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. There are playgrounds, rolling lawns, cafes, and other diversions along the way, not to mention, world-famous shopping here.

Much of this area was devastated after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and it is still slowly recovering but continue to flock here to view the site.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
