Loved the letters, journals, paintings, Martha Washington's slippers, George Washington's tooth, hair, rifle etc. So much history in a small space (upstairs from the tavern and bar). Great place to explore for an hour or so. We could really picture what happened during the war....More

First off, the building is beautiful and the dining room, whiskey bar, and bar look very inviting and interesting, though we didn't have time to take advantage of these areas on the main floor. My family group toured the upstairs museum and it was full...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
