Explore Lower Manhattan

Welcome to lower Manhattan, where it’s no longer just business as usual in New York City’s traditional financial district. Since the September 11, 2001 attacks, downtown has become a diverse and thriving neighborhood.

Plan a visit to the 9/11 Memorial. Relive the history of George Washington and Alexander Hamilton. Marvel at the architecture of Cass Gilbert and Frank Gehry. Wonder at the iconic Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge. Revel in the views of spectacular New York Harbor as well as explore world-class museums and attractions.

There are plenty of hotels, hundreds of shops and restaurants and great public transportation in lower Manhattan. Visit the Downtown Alliance website for information on where to go, what to do, and where to stay.
