Financial District Apartments

The Financial District, referred to as FIDI for short, has seen dramatic growth over the last decade, swelling from 15,000 to over 56,000 residents.

The neighborhood is all the way at the bottom tip of Manhattan, and it is evenly split between East and West. The New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve Bank remain the centers of daytime activity in the neighborhood, but you’ll also find its apartment residents window shopping at the South Street Seaport's outdoor mall, or sipping a frozen daiquiri and singing karaoke on Water Taxi Beach.

FIDI’s secret is its huge lofts, many of which have been converted into cavernous apartments. Aside from lofts, the Financial District is also home to tons of luxury high rises, where investment bankers fresh out of college or business school come to lay their heads for a few brief hours before heading back to work.

During the summer, Stone Street evokes the feel of the streets of Italy with its cobblestones and outdoor dining--except that most of the crowd is in suits and discussing stocks and bonds over their beers. Stop by the popular Ulysses, which feels like an underground cavern, for one of their many craft beers and a lively happy hour, and for a nightcap, head across the street to Vintry, which celebrates all different types of whisky in its cocktail menu.

More about Financial District

A cool historical spot in the financial district to grab a beer is Fraunces Tavern, which also has a small museum. The tavern, registered on the US national register of historic places, was a pivotal post in the Revolutionary war, hosting secret meetings and negotiations between the Americans and British towards the end of the war. When the British finally were defeated, the American army hosted a celebratory feast at Fraunces Tavern, and the George Washington is said to have given an emotional farewell address there to his troops.

If you’re craving the beach in the summer, look no further than Beekman Beer Garden, which has an entire outdoor section full of sand, where patrons come to walk around barefoot and get tan lines somewhere besides the Hamptons.

The neighborhood is one of the most accessible neighborhoods in NYC with subway stops including 1/2/3/4/5/6/A/C/R/W/J/M/Z trains, as well as the PATH train and Staten Island Ferry.
