Walking in NYC (Financial District, Manhattan)

Hello everyone, it has been a while since my last Walking in NYC tour thread. So I will treat you with this one amazing walking tour of NYC. This is one of the most important neighborhood of NYC. The Financial Distrcit in Downtown Manhattan. Alot of Finacial workers come here to make big cash, and alot of them do. There also all types of other jobs aswell, not all financial related. I really love this area because of its history, its present and its future. I was very exciting to take photos here. And I hope you get excited to see these photos aswell. I made 3 posts because there are 86 photos. Enjoy!


Financial District, Manhattan


The Financial District of New York City is a neighborhood on the southernmost section of the borough of Manhattan which comprises the offices and headquarters of many of the city's major financial institutions, including the New York Stock Exchange. The neighborhood was anchored by the World Trade Center until the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The neighborhood is roughly coterminous with the boundaries of the New Amsterdam settlement in the late 17th century, and has a residential population of about 30,000, during the day the population swells to about 300,000.

As a district, it encompasses roughly the area south of City Hall Park but excluding Battery Park and Battery Park City. The heart of the Financial District is often considered to be the corner of Wall Street and Broad Street, both of which are contained entirely within the district.

NYC is pretty much the Capital of the World. Your photos are a testament to such a claim.

Agreed,I just love seeing pictures of the Big Apple. I'm a big upset I didn't get over to Wall Street last October during my visit. I was heading there, and I make the mistake of boarding an express train over the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn. It went so far into Brooklyn before it stopped, and I was already tired spending the day in SoHo, so I went back to the upper east side where I was staying.

Anyway I hate you (lol), I would love to live in NYC. But my unreachable desire would be to have a place in both LA and NYC, so I have to settle for visiting when I can afford to.

I doubt many people outside the states would agree, but it is a great world city. This area is my favourite due to the more random street layout though battery park was a bit seedy when i visited which was a disapointment.

Great pictures. I've never really had the chance to see the Financial DIstrict, but I would like to some time.

What I like about the Financial District is the grid pattern doesn't exist, which makes the place more interesting. The grid in Midtown and other places is nice and efficient, but straight roads all the time can get boring.

#12 was my favorite picture.

What a complex and beautiful urban landscape. One of the best in the world. I wish people would look to New York more often to see examples of old and new architecture, short and tall buildings co-existing.

New York is one of the few cities in the world where one can find a classic building from the 1700's nestled next to an ultramodern skyscraper.

Don't be hatting.

I also love to travel to the West Coast, especially in California (wish I could also have a place there). So you are lucky to live in such an awesome state with so many great cities and places. But yeah NYC is my home and I am so glad I live here.
