- Stone Street is as old as the city itself. It was first developed by the Dutch in the 1600s. The cobblestoned alley has an unassuming look, but it was here that New York had got its first paved street. It has two rows of not very tall brick buildings, and old fashioned lights. After facing a downward trend, this neighborhood has been reconstructed with the help of the community and Downtown Alliance and given its bright look again. It is now home to upscale restaurants, is very popular with tourists and New Yorkers. The street has an old fashioned look and feel and yet is the most popular destination.
