This place was recommended by a tour guide. It is a small older establishment. We were a little reluctant, but went in and ordered fish & chips and hamburger and fries. The service was good and after we tasted our food we wanted to order...More

Needed a late night bite and very few places in the city, let alone the seaport area were open. The Paris Café is open to 4am. We got in about 11 and could still get some lighter bites, that were all really good, along with...More

I used to go to the Paris Cafe quite a bit when traveling on business, but had not been there in a while. The service and attitude of the bartenders has declined horribly. This used to be a friendly place, with good service, but I...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.

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