“Downtown New York City is a must-see neighborhood”
— Philippe Orain, editorial director and editor-in-chief of the Michelin Green Guide
Lower Manhattan has great hotels, central public transit and most of the city’s main attractions, plus it’s a lot less crowded than other parts of the city.
Main attractions include:
- Statue of Liberty
- 9/11 Museum and Memorial
- One World Observatory
- Wall Street
It’s also a three-star Michelin’s Green Guide destination, it’s surrounded on three sides by water, and the ferry to outdoor gem Governors Island leaves from here. Basically, Lower Manhattan has it all, and it’s the spot to base your stay.
