Financial District

Bounded by water on nearly all sides, the financial district is located in the southern tip of Manhattan. Known for hosting the city's largest financial headquarters, this neighborhood has a lot to offer residents.

Famous retailers started opening outposts including Hermès, Tiffany & Co, Sak's, Gucci, and Farragamo. For bargain hunters, Century 21 on Cortland Street reigns supreme since opening their doors some 50 years ago.

Delmonico's on Beaver Street (its roots trace back to 1827) is notable for its famous patrons including Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, J.P. Morgan, Napoleon III and King Edward the VII.

The seaport and East River Esplanade have been reimagined. At pier 11 you can take a boat ride to one of the other boroughs. Neighborhood site seeing includes the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the skyscraper museum, Wall Street, and the World Trade center site.

Fun Facts: George Washington was inaugurated here in 1789 in front of Federal Hall; Delmonico has invented the Delmonico steak, eggs Benedict, baked Alaska and all remain on the menu today.

Housing Stock: Condominium and cooperative lofts, inside converted commercial buildings and new developments with spectacular amenities.
