At the time City Hall was completed in 1811 people thought it was so far north in the city that no one would ever see the back of it. Finally, in 1954 the red bricks on the back of the building were replaced by marble which was taken from the same quarry in Vermont that had been used in 1811.... More

There's so much to see in Lower Manhattan that one can use all the help one can get. In all seasons, but especially the warmer ones, the City Hall Park is a miniature gem, remarkable in every way. So, walk through it, take a few selfies, and get some info. It's also near Tweed Hall and the Woolworth Bldg (across... More

It's a relatively small park but New York City Hall is a majestic building. It does make for some great photos. Something was going on when we were there so we did not get too close to the building. There were some press and lots of NYPD there.

Nothing special, but special because it is just there in front of the city hall and the little details: lampposts, fountain, woolworth building view, etc. Sometimes there is inconspicuous art posted on the gates. And the contemplation of its history as a debtors prison was here.

This park was renovated not that long ago to bring back the historic lighting, fountains and quite beauty of this gem south of City Hall and very near the Manhattan landing of the Brooklyn Bridge. Well worth a visit.

If you're in the area The small park and especially near the fountain are a great place to stop and relax. It's a good quiet place between visiting the twin towers area and heading to visit Brooklyn Bridge.

So many people visit this area and yet there is a total lack of public "Restrooms". To see more people queuing in the Starbucks cafes to use the toilet rather than to order a coffee is not something one would expect in one of the "Great cities of the World". Even Paris is more civilized than this.

The best thing about City Hall--worth a visit, for sure--is the park to the south of it. It's charming in all seasons, but especially when the fountain is on. From the Visitor Info Cntr you can plan a pleasant tour of downtown Manhattan including the Woolworth Bldg, Tweed Hall (just north of City Hall), Wall Street & the Financial District,... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
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.
