Financial District

Home to Major Financial Institutions and Professionals
New York's Financial District, or FiDi, is a financial powerhouse. Many financial offices are headquartered in this district, such as the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Wall Street draws many bankers, traders, and consultants to the area, and its skyscrapers and landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial and the One World Trade Center attract tourists as well. The restaurant and bars on South Street Seaport and Stone Street are a favorite among the crowds.

Most of the buildings for rent in the Financial District are high-rises. While the work days are fast-paced, evenings and weekends slow down to a quieter neighborhood. Residents love the green outdoor spaces, the waterfront and its views, and the very accessible public transportation.

Financial District — 7.9/10 Rating (based on 17 neighborhood reviews)
Traditionally one of the best neighborhoods, however my building is in the southern end of the area. Great restaurant scene (expensive) with things like Target and whole foods close. Not the best for nightlife in general but in the summer there are great bars near the water.

Not as quiet as everyone tells you! There are a ton of bars and nice restaurants, especially for happy hour. As well as plenty of latenight and seamless options.

Having every subway at virtually one station is incredible, so easy to get anywhere uptown.

Living in the FiDi was a great transition for a small town girl moving to the big city! Pretty much everyone goes home by 6 which leaves the streets quiet. The financial district is the part of the city that sleeps. There's multiple affordable grocery shops in the neighborhood, great dining on Stone St and it's home to the charging bull and The World Trade Center!

FIDI is quiet at night and on the weekends. Very safe. There are plenty of great bars and restaurants with great happy hour deals though. Lots of young professionals. Easy transportation from Fulton St. Station or Wall St. Would recommend.

I love the Financial District. It is very safe, very quiet and very up and coming. There are so many new shops and restaurants opening all the time. With the addition of WTC and Brookfield, it has become even more booming.

Stone Street and South Street Seaport are awesome with great bars and restaurants. Its really quiet at night which is nice and you areose to almost every subway line. The only downside is that most people who live outside the area rarely trek to FiDi to go out.

Many lunch places and groceries; Fulton St Market being the best onewith more variety and more reasonably priced than Jubilee or Gristedes. No hot restaurants; mostly boring places but walking distance to Tribeca which is much better. The best is it's right by 2,3,4,5,J,Z trains and A,C,N,R a few blocks away. Also driving wise all roads lead to FiDi no matter if you come from the east or west side.

The area is beautiful! Right by the water with so much grass and trees nearby. It's nice and quiet, with enough things still happening. It's a nice break from the city to come home from work, but super convenient to get to anywhere from the other side of the West Side Highway. There's outdoor dancing on the boardwalk, the seaglass carousel, luxury shopping and great restaurants.

My experience thus far has been great. In the summer time the seaport is very lively no matter the day of the week. I think the financial district is an up and coming area.

I love this area! It's less crowded than the rest of the city (but can get crazy in the summer), is right on the water and therefore beautiful, and has a ton of subway lines that will quickly take you anywhere you want to go in Midtown.

I love living in the Fidi. It's close to every public transportation, you can walk East or West quickly. It's growing in ways I don't love, and I worry that it's just going to be one big mall soon.

Safe, barely any noise at night. The only problem is the closest grocery store is a 10 min walk away.
