Financial District/Battery Park
Lower Manhattan, from its southernmost tip to Chambers Street on the north, west from the Hudson River to the East River.
Once the exclusive domain of ambitious day traders, the Financial District has evolved into a genuine neighborhood filled with parks, movie theaters and public schools. There's activity everywhere you look in "FiDi" and adjacent Battery Park City, from the spandex-clad runners along the Hudson River Esplanade to the grade school softball games at the Community Ballfields to the parade of parents pushing strollers on their way to a riverfront playground. Residents particularly enjoy the proximity to public transportation, inspiring views and convenient building amenities like rooftop decks, fitness rooms and dry-cleaning services.
