Financial District neighborhood info
The Financial District (sometimes called FiDi) at the south end of Manhattan is the nation's first capital and the embryo
from which New York City grew. The neighborhood contains an architectural blend of the very old and the very new. Originally
called Nieuw Amsterdam by its Dutch settlers, today you’ll find a contrast of colonial buildings and relics of the country's
earliest days nestled in the shadows of the massive skyscrapers that now rise at the tip of the island of Manhattan.
The Financial District is synonymous with Wall Street, and on April 30, 1789, George Washington, the first president of the
United States took the oath of office on the balcony of Federal Hall. This was also the location of the passing of the Bill
Of Rights. The area today comprises the offices and headquarters of many of the city's major financial institutions, including
the New York Stock Exchange and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The World Trade Center existed in the neighborhood until
the September 11 attacks and is currently being rebuilt. The neighborhood roughly overlaps the boundaries of the New Amsterdam
settlement in the late 17th century and has a residential population of about 56,000. During the day, the population swells
to about 300,000.
