The Financial District encompasses the entire area of Manhattan below Chinatown and Tribeca to the southern tip of the island. Several office buildings in the area have been converted for residential use, making what was once a quiet place after the business day a vibrant neighborhood bustling with shops and restaurants that cater to the growing full-time population. This is a great location for those wishing to walk to work on Wall Street. Also in the area is Battery Park City, a mixed residential and commercial neighborhood within walking distance to the downtown business district. Battery Park City is a small “city within a city” with shops, restaurants, and even a marina. The Financial District is home to the South Street Seaport with its beautiful harbor views and many shops and restaurants. Open-air concerts are also held here. At the very tip of the island, one can take in spectacular views of Governors and Ellis Islands and spot the Statue of Liberty in the distance. Also within walking distance are the Castle Clinton National Monument and the Jewish Heritage Museum.
