The area at the very tip of Manhattan is called The Financial District. It is mostly made up of skyscrapers, business workers and tourists. This area is the heart if the worlds financial market, so very busy during the week, but during the night and weekends it is only tourists or rather empty.
Wall Street is an actual street in NYC. It is associated with money, with the New York Stock Exchange being right in the centre as well as The Trump Towers. The NYSE about $50 billion are exchanged/ day!!
Across the street is the Federal Hall National memorial with a statue of George Washington outside.
At the end of Wall Street is Trinity Church- the first parish church in NYC. And use to be the tallest building in Manhattan!
Where Broadway ends in the financial district a small green called The Bowling Green is located. Here is the famous charging bull is found-as well as hundreds of tourists trying to take a photo.
To the South of the Financial district there is a South Street Seaport. Which in contrast to most of the rest of the area as it is often described as an ‘outside shopping centre’. The buildings are from around the 1800s, so it’s a rather pretty area to stroll around, and if you really want to visit the museum. From here you can walk down South Street, passing the piers to reach Staten Island ferry terminal, which runs 24/7!
Not to forget the prominent 9/11memorial site also found in the financial district.
Whilst down in the Financial District I enjoyed a delicious cheese burger from the well known chain, Shake Shack. People have been talking about it for a while, and even now in the UK. For a classic burger, Shake Shack does put most other chain burgers to shame!
