Housed in a very historic building and dwarfed by skyscrapers all round, this place is a must for anyone looking for a decent beer in lower Manhattan. The beer selection was very extensive with the velvet nitro stout being a favourite. Possibly one of the...More

We happened on the Fraunces while visiting lower Manhattan and were pleasantly surprised at this gem in the middle of all the shiny, reflective skyscrapers. The service and the food was good and the ambiance can't be beat. Who can top the location where George...More

After several hours at the Ground Zero museum and site, we needed some respite. Took a determined walk from there to Lower Manhattan to this historic site from another century. Both the walk and the tavern provided the necessary relief and sustenance. We thought we'd...More

It was a quiet night since we were in for a pre theater dinner at 5:30. Service was good and food was average. But the history in the restaurant brings it up a notch. Fish on fish and chips good, but fries soggy. Plus, had...More

This is my go-to with out of town guests. Where to take the parents when they visit for a fancy-but-not-crazy-NYC-fancy dinner? The dining room. Where to go with kids after seeing the Statue of Liberty? The pub side. Reasonably priced American food, cool atmosphere, great...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
