Financial District

Financial District

The lower Manhattan neighborhood known as the Financial District has been growing and changing nearly non-stop since it was first developed centuries ago. While the business of the Financial District is still business, many of the grand towers in the neighborhood have been converted into luxury condominiums -- and enough new construction condos have risen alongside them -- that the number of people living in the district more than doubled in the first decade of the 21st century. A number of highly rated public schools make the Financial District even more desirable, while an influx of upscale shopping, as well as a tide of restaurants and bars that range from posh to endearingly down-home, have ensured that the New Yorkers who have flocked to the Financial District are living well in one of the most historically significant neighborhoods in Manhattan. A neighborhood defined by reinvention -- from Dutch colony to the center of global banking and business -- the Financial District has gracefully remade itself as one of the most desirable residential neighborhoods in Manhattan.
