Wall Street and Lower Broadway make up the area of Manhattan known as the Financial District. Although this area is less crowded on the weekends due to the high preponderance of businesses here with less residential traffic. There are roughly 60,000 people that call this neighborhood home though mainly in taller high-rise type structures.
The World Trade Center had its home there, and now is called Ground Zero. The memorial structure there is open to the public since 2012, which opened a decade after September 11th, 2001 when the tragedy of the Twin Towers was on everyone’s minds. The 9/11 Museum contained in the building is close to where the future location of the Frank Gehry designed Performing Arts Center meant to bring art and peace to the area.
Stone Street is famous for its rows of bars and restaurants that are wedged in between the New York Stock Exchange and many historic buildings. Take in South William, Pearl Street, and Coenties Alley as part of this area. If you truly adore finance you might want to stop by the Museum of American Finance to take in the Smithsonian Institution affiliate home to many artifacts that tell the history of finance in America. Good luck talking the kids into seeing this attraction. They are more likely going to enjoy getting frozen yogurt at Red Mango on Fulton.
