This place is great and it's free. There is some special background involved with Federal Hall, so it is worth checking out if you are even remotely interested in U.S. history. Take some time to read the exhibition material, as this is where the value...More

If the weather outside is cold or too warm, this is a great place to learn about the multiple buildings on this site related to the establishment of our country. And, it is free. Tours are available at scheduled times.

The statue that sits directly in front of this architectural masterpiece in the Wall Street area makes it a nice spot for a photo op.

I've been to the front steps here before, but it was closed inside. This time it was open, so I got to go inside and check it out. Very cool! Amazing how much history has happened there. You can feel it around you.

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.
