As I told my wife repeatedly when we were walking through the Financial District last weekend, so much of the downtown area has been torn down and rebuilt over and over again, that little of what the area must have looked like in previous centuries survives. Luckily, there are some pockets of preserved architecture here and there. Stone Street Historic District is one of them. It's a bit touristy, with some nice pubs and such for visitors to eat in. But after walking through the antiseptic wall street area, it is nice to see something from another era, with some color and character to it.

It makes you think of how it must have been to travely in the olden days walking on the old stones on this street. I am glad to say I like the "new" streets better and happy I didn't have to travel by buggy on that street. Very interesting to see.

This place has a certain charm that is truly new York. The architecture is amazing, the bars are hip, and cool. It is relaxed, while at the same time crazy ad any other part of this city. Is you are into photography. This place will be your sanctuary.

If you are planning a trip to New York you will not be disappointed with stone street. Make sure you go from Monday to Friday since Stone Street is busy with the work crowd. It had cobble stone streets, row upon rows for pub and restaurants and you will enjoy your meal and beverages in the street. A great stop!

Stone St. is a perfect place to meet friends after work or for brunch on the weekends if you're in the Financial District. With its cobblestone streets and outdoor seating you can socialize in a European style atmosphere. There are plenty of choices of bars and restaurants for you to choose from and they all open up to the outdoor seating. It doesn't look like anywhere else in the city so its worth the visit especially when the weather is nice.
