We were especially fortunate to have such an expert guide....Annie gave us a very personal account of that terrible day in New York's history, with much detail on the various elements of the tragedy. The areas we visited were all relevant ( the streets, St... More

Our group ended up being very small but it was great that way. Annie our guide was SO friendly, sensitive and knowledgeable. It was a very cold afternoon and so she was sensitive and asked us if we would like to go someplace that was warm to hear the first 2o minutes of talking before we started to walk. We... More

Thanks to Dennis our Hells Kitchen Pub crawl was the highlight of our time in New York. We had the best night which went well beyond the tour hours - we learnt lots and made new friends. We can't wait to come back to New York and have Dennis as our guide for another tour!

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. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
