People don’t flock to Manhattan’s Financial District for trendy shops and a packed nightlife scene; in fact, it’s quite the opposite. The Financial District offers people iconic New York City on a silver platter: Soaring skyscrapers, Wall Street, well-known companies, incredible city views from Financial District apartments and high-rises, flocks of tourists with cameras in-hand, the charging bull statue and a bustling lunchtime crowd between high-powered meetings.
While the Financial District was once a place for people to primarily visit for work, the emergence of area real estate is a hot topic. In fact, the more than $30 billion in neighborhood investments over the last 10 years has all but guaranteed more people will move to the area and additional Financial District apartments will be constructed to keep up with growing demand. Luxurious, modern and sometimes soaring residential buildings are highly sought-after, and because this residential renaissance is relatively new, it’s less expensive than one might expect in such a prime spot. If the real estate rumors are to be believed, this area will be completely transformed and highly residential in just a year or two.
The location of the Financial District makes for a fantastic commute, with its proximity to multiple trains, buses, ferry lines and subways just steps from most Financial District apartments. Wall Street is less than 20 minutes to Downtown Brooklyn by subway, Staten Island an hour by bus, 30 minutes on the Red line to Harlem and 20 minutes to Times Square and Midtown on the subway, so commuters have the luxury of kicking back with a good book and avoiding traffic jams and rush-hour crowds. And since the Financial District is such a well-loved tourist destination - it’s the second-most-visited NYC spot after Times Square - avoiding a crowded commute will save both time and sanity.
But there’s so much more to do in the Financial District than ogle Wall Street and take a photo in front of the charging bull statue. The 9/11 Museum is the newest addition to the area’s museum lineup, which also includes the Skyscraper Museum, the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the Museum of American Finance, among others. Don’t forget to visit Federal Hall, where George Washington took the oath as our country’s first president, stop for dinner at Delmonico’s or Reserve Cut, then end the night with cocktails and live music at the renovated and historic Fraunces Tavern, the same spot where George Washington bid farewell to his troops in 1783. No matter where you go, you’re sure to find centuries’ worth of history and modern amenities, just outside Financial District apartments and landmarks.
