Kind staff, relatively clean (for new york). I unfortunately went on a very warm day and while crammed in the Eric Garner exhibit, the ventilation system broke... Overall not a bad experience (again, for new york)

Still suffering the effects of Super Storm Sandy. There is a temporary site at 45 Wall Street. Stop by and don't miss the Museum Store.

Really interesting little museum. 3 floors of information, artefacts and photos of NYC police history. As you would expect, there is an area focussing on 9/11, which includes items worn by officers that lost their lives, which may be upsetting to some visitors. I visited...More

Folks be aware, there is some rumors and talk of a $25 fee to be imposed to visit this museum. However, things are being done to try to ward off this exorbitant fee. Stay tunes

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
