Covering the entire southern tip of Lower Manhattan, the Financial District attracts tourists, commerce and residents with its narrow historic streets, iconic attractions and breathtaking harbor views. The massive district is bordered by Chambers Street and the Brooklyn Bridge approach to the north, West Street to the west, and the New York Harbor and East River to the southeast. Redevelopment booms in both the World Trade Center area and along the South Street Seaport make FiDi one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the city.
Once criticized for its lack of services, the neighborhood is evolving from isolated business district to full-fledged residential haven while offering some of the most affordable housing of any downtown neighborhood. In fact, with its busy daytime vibe and quieter nighttime hours, the neighborhood strikes the perfect balance between active and subdued. Here, house hunters will mostly find high-rise rental and condo options.
