Manhattan’s Financial District: Wall Street, Skyscrapers, Museums, and a Memorial
Once the sole province of day-traders and bankers working frenetic jobs at the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, and other world-renowned institutions on Wall Street and Broad Street, the Financial District has in recent years begun to attract its fair share of full-time residents. Today, more than 56,000 people live in the neighborhood, which borders Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan.
The population boom has brought new cultural attractions along with it. At the eastern edge of Fulton Street, the revitalized South Street Seaport historic district is where you’ll find some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan as well as renovated sailing ships, the former Fulton Fish Market, and an up-close view of the Brooklyn Bridge. Back on Wall Street, the New York City Police Museum provides an in-depth look at the history of the NYPD via an array of interactive exhibits.
Of course, the Financial District was once home to the World Trade Center towers, which were destroyed in the attacks of September 11, 2001. Where the Twin Towers once stood, six new skyscrapers are being built in their place, including One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the western hemisphere. A memorial to the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the attacks is now open for visits. <p>
