In New York’s famous financial district, there are a lot of skyscrapers, high pace during the day and considerably calmer in the evening when the office workers have left.
The most famous part, apart from Wall Street, is the place for the 9/11 attack. Ground Zero is almost complete and where the twin towers used to be are now two large pools with the names of all people that died that day, engraved.
One World Observatory stands tall next to Ground Zero, and from the top three floors you have an amazing view.
Don’t miss a visit to the 9/11 Memorial Museum, a guaranteed emotional experience.
The Calatravas Oculus’ beautiful wings extends over the WTC Transportation Hub subway station, which also contains many nice shops in addition to the 11 subway lines.
At The Battery (formely known as Battery Park) you’ll have breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and Staten Island as well as a break from the skyscrapers with sky, water and a green oasis. Here you can rent bikes and either walk or bike up the Hudson River Park or across the East River over the Brooklyn Bridge.
