One of Manhattan’s best qualities is its unique and varied neighborhoods. ‘Life in’ provides a taste of New York City’s distinct sub-cultures to help you find the perfect place to call home.
There’s a charm and a quaintness about downtown Manhattan. This sentiment couldn’t be more true in 10004. Anchored by Battery Park City to the West, Tribeca to the north and FiDi to the south, 10004 has been re-branding itself as the perfect place to live, work and play since 2001. Now a locale where writers, clotheshorses and bankers collide, 10004 is whirling with young families, professionals and tourists among a midst of skyscrapers with Lady Liberty in the distance. An increasingly desirable spot to reside, the area is booming with luxury apartment towers.
Early-risers can be found at Bean & Bean, Bluestone Lane or FIKA for their daily dose of caffeine. For those moving at a more leisurely pace, take in the incredible sea breeze along Battery Park. Indulge your inner cultural fiend at one of 10004’s many museums and art galleries.
As more restaurants and shops begin to stay open later, the area continues to buzz long after the workday is done. Eat and drink yourself into a tizzy along the zip code’s famed Stone Street. Or pop over to Delmonico’s for the ultimate old-school steakhouse experience. Just make sure you save some room for dessert at Insomnia Cookies. Your sweet tooth can thank us later.
With busy bustling weekdays in 10004, locals bask in the peace and quiet found here on weekends. But if action is what you’re after, ferries to Liberty Island, Governor’s Island and Staten Island are a hop, skip and jump away.
Whichever facade of downtown you prefer, one thing holds true about 10004: there’s a history and an undeniable mystery that’s just waiting to be explored.
