Financial District is so different from the rest of NYC. It lives on the weekdays. Finance men leave offices by 6pm and the neighborhood turns almost into a movie set, dark tight streets of Gotham City. Very quite, pretty streets that weave around high rise buildings, everything you see in the movies. Just to name a few, Spider Man, Money man featuring George Clooney, as well as Wolf of Wall Street.
I don't go there often. It is not very close to my place, and more importantly, the area lacks great dining options, which is a huge disadvantage since i'm a big foodie.
The bustling life of men in pursuit of their dreams, with skyscrapers reaching for the stars, perfectly suits a photo shoot. It creates perfect scenery. Especially street style.
Although I seldom go down to FiDi, I have found interesting places to recommend. First, I can eat and watch movies at the same time in the best movie theater in NYC, called iPic. Two of my favorite things combined! Not to mention, the food is being served from the restaurant "The Tuck Room", which has great food, pretty interior design, spacious bar and delicious food.
Seaport, the historically protected neighborhood recently went through heavy make over after Sandy storm. They did a great job, which brought the neighborhood back in a new updated entertainment, while also preserving the authenticity and history of the Seaport. Cute little shops around Fulton and Front street give you the vibes of Europe.
A must visit place is "Blacktail" bar. A quick travel to Cuba is guaranteed. Their cocktails are amazing!
That is what I call my perfect day in this neighborhood. Movies, dinner, stroll and a cocktail bar. And a quick shoot!
Never been to this park before, it's beautiful! Looks exactly like High Line park in Chelsea. It's on Water street, right by the river.
