George Washington was sworn into the office of President at Federal Hall, and there is on loan the very Bible he used for his oath of office. The architecture and history are wonderful, and the sculpture of Washington outside Federal Hall is outstanding.
In a quick visit you can get the historical overview. After living in the NYC area my whole life I did learn some interesting tidbits. It doesn’t take long. If you’re in the area I recommend taking 15 or 20 minutes to see it.
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
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
