About the Neighborhood

Anchored by the glistening new Freedom Tower, the Financial District is known for the obvious. But the area's finance guys have recently gained some nice new neighbors: as media companies including Condé Nast have moved downtown, the likes of Brooks Brothers, Ferragamo and Tiffany have also opened up shops. This new jumble of writers, clotheshorses and bankers might have their differences, but they can agree on the Financial District’s exceptional views: a bunch of skyscrapers in the foreground, and Lady Liberty in Atlantic Ocean beyond.
