About Financial District Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Also known as FiDi, the Financial District is located on the southern tip of Manhattan. It has a mix of energy – fast-paced during the day and calm and quiet at night and on weekends. Many tourists enjoy visiting the historical and cultural landmarks such as The National 9/11 Memorial & Museum, World Trade Center Station (PATH), Trinity Church, Seaport District and of course, Wall Street. On a typical day, this busy financial hub is filled with many white-collar workers mixed with first-time visitors there to enjoy the shopping and sites. In addition to great views of the Hudson and East River and glossy, luxury high-rise buildings, the cobblestone streets give it a uniquely historical appeal. It is a popular area for pet-owners as many of the high-rise residential buildings have liberal pet policies.
