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

Oh you'll enjoy it so much! Although I don't think anybody can tell you what's the best time, as it will mostly depend on the weather. We had on and off rainstorms on the day of our flight but still were able to have lots of... More
