We went at 8:30 in the morning to avoid the crowds. I understand that later in the day it can be wall-to-wall people and not all that much fun.

You probably saw Brooklyn Bridge in movies more time then some parts of your hometown. My initial thought were that it is nice and a must visit place but also that it is too touristic and maybe even nothing special. But trust me, when me...More

I traveled with a large group, and most of them elected to stay behind when we began the walk. I definitely recommend the walk if you are able, as you get to see so many different types of people around you, an awesome view of...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
