Best known as the financial services hub of New York City, FiDi is becoming increasingly residential. Young professionals are flocking to the area drawn by the convenient transportation, newly renovated apartments and striking waterfront views.
During the day, the Financial District can be chaotic with an influx of office workers and tourists attracted to the many historical sites, museums and phenomenal views the neighborhood offers. After the workday crowds clear, the neighborhood becomes quiet and calm. Nightlife is confined to a few small areas, as most residents return to their amenity-rich buildings and rooftop patios.
