A place to visit and learn about early American government. Relatively quite and free. This building has been rebuilt and at one time New York City was the capitol of the United States of America.

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.

of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
