Financial District: Over the past decade, the Financial District has transformed its shiny steel exterior into a softer, more residential place to live. Sure, you’ll still run into a few suits during lunch hours but once they are gone, the neighborhood is all yours as you take in the sights of towering skyscrapers, New Amsterdam and the Statue of Liberty. As dusk falls, you’ll want to be sure to head over to a nearby rooftop overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge for a happy hour you won’t want to miss. Walk the narrow streets to return home to your newly renovated apartment building that most likely features more amenities than a small country. The Financial District is defined by opulence in both careers and residencies.
