Trinity Church

This Neo-Gothic Revival-style church, rebuilt for the second time in 1846, is one of the most unusual, yet interesting, places to visit. The burial ground houses two very interesting once-upon-a-time New Yorkers: Robert Fulton, the inventor of the steamboat, and Alexander Hamilton, the 1st Secretary of Treasury to the US.

St. Paul's Chapel

This church, unlike Trinity Church, was built only once in 1766 and is currently Manhattan's oldest public building in continuous use. St. Paul's Chapel is a survivor to some of New York's greatest known disasters, such as the great fire that dates back to 1835 up to the tragic September 11 attacks in 2001.

Woolworth Building

As it opened on the spring day of April 24, 1913, the Woolworth Building was declared the world's tallest building. Constructed in neo-Gothic style by architect Cass Gilbert, the building is still one of the most famous skyscrapers in New York City to this day.

City Hall

Home to government offices, such as the City Council and the Mayor's office, City Hall sits at the intersection of Broadway, Park Row, and Chambers Street. Built in the grand French Renaissance architectural style, it holds the title of the oldest City Hall in the United States!

An area as rich as the Financial District in history, beauty, and a unique sense of character- why wouldn't it be known as the birthplace of New York City?

NY Neighborhoods: the Financial District

Video Description:
Renowned as the home to Wall Street, bankers and brokers, The Financial District has undergone a residential rebirth in the last decade. Today, financiers stroll alongside families enjoying the neighborhoods never-ending array of amenities. The mix of old and new makes the area dramatically different and ever changing. Cobblestone streets, old world architecture and historical landmarks stand alongside modern glass-skinned towers, renovated warehouses and the like. It all creates an aura of nostalgia and excitement not found anywhere else on the island.

The southernmost neighborhood of the island borders the Brooklyn Bridge to the north, Battery Park to the West, and the East and Hudson Rivers. Beyond shopping, South Street Seaport on the East River and the Fulton Street District provide plenty of dining options as does Stone Street. New additions are the kid-friendly Imagination Playground, farmers market and Manhattans 1st urban beach opening at the Seaport Water Taxi Dock.
