Not much to see here, but worth dropping by as you pass through the Wall Street area and Lower Manhattan. Here George Washington was swore in as President as I recall. You won't spend more than a few minutes here, but why not do that...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.

of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
