Lower Manhattan: Tribeca, Battery Park City & the Financial District Attractions in New York City

Sure, you could spend all day seeing the bright lights of Times Square, taking a stroll uptown to lay at the Great Lawn of Central Park, or do the Museum Mile on the Upper East Side. But if you really want to go where the action is, where New Yorkers go to let loose, enjoy a post-work meal and drink, see the latest gallery opening, or find a secluded spot, then downtown is where you need to be. Here is your local guide to experiencing Lower Manhattan.
