About: Financial District
The Financial District, the southernmost point of Manhattan on the east side and is a bustling center of industry. Wall Street and its giant bronze bull statue draw crowds every day. The New York Stock exchange and the New York Federal Reserve Bank are both located in the Financial District. Housing is limited in the Financial District due to the many high-rise office buildings. Most apartments and vacation rentals can be found in high-rise apartment buildings.
The historic Trinity Church, US Customs house and the Federal Hall National Monument where George Washington was inaugurated are all situated in the Financial District.
The South Street Sea Port with its museum, and many shops offers a great view of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge. This is a recreation of an 1800's fishing port that represents what much of the lower part of Manhattan would have looked like at that time. The cobble stones and the old brick buildings set next to the antique ships moored at the docks really gives a great look at the history of the area.
Due to a limited stock of apartments there are not many vacation rentals in the Financial District, but with easy subway access and tons of history the Financial District is a spot worth considering when looking for a Manhattan vacation rental.
