Situated in the heart of Wall Street, Federal Hall offers a glimpse into history and an opportunity to stand on the steps where our first president took his oath of office. Technically, they tore the original building down and reconstructed it, so while not entirely...More

This is a great place for those that love American history. See several artifacts inside from when George Washington took his oath of office. Beautiful inside as well.

This is very inspiring place. Federal Hall is a memorial building where George Washington was inagurated as First U.S. President.

I would definitely recommend taking the tour guide a tour of Federal Hall. It is very well marked and the exhibits are interesting but the tour adds another level to the history of the place.

Although this is not the original Federal Hall building that was destroyed by fire in the old days, this is still a beautiful classic architecture building with a little museum inside. They also rent the space out for corporate events, you can have a dinner...More

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
