Financial District Reviews
I go to school in the Financial District and it's a nice area! There's plenty of restaurants, both fast food and sit down, as well as convince stores. One thing I would change is the closing times of many of the stores in the area, since it is a mainly business area places close pretty early.
The Financial District is a great place if you are interested in living in proximity to dense and bustling Manhattan without necessarily living in it. Unlike the rest of Manhattan which can be a bit dense and overwhelming FiDi is much more relaxed and spread out. There are less people and less crowded streets. Traffic quiets down significantly after 5pm. Because the island of Manhattan tapers towards the south the land is not as wide and you feel as if you are surrounded by the river on numerous sides. I like that several subway lines converge in the part of the city providing easy and quick access to anywhere else. There is a bit of tourism but nothing bothersome. Attractions in the area are the South Street Seaport, Stone Street restaurants/bars/pubs, Trinity Church, The World Trade Center & Oculus, and Battery Park. Generally I like living there because there is enough business and entertainment to satisfy you and you quickly get to other parts of the city for even better options.
Great place, very shady so there is usually a nice breeze and the fulton center is great. Only downside is not being able to control who exactly is on the streets.. There can be some strange people wandering the streets, but it is a cool place.
