Many take pictures outside and then continue the visit to the city, but inside there is much to see, many documents and artifacts from US history. The importance of the place is very tied to George Washington. You must enter !!

There were people inside dressed up in period clothes. This is the building where George Washington was sworn in. The exhibit is not that big, but there are several park rangers around to help answer questions.

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
