What Makes Lower Manhattan Unique

Lower Manhattan is where U.S. history began. It’s walkable from the Hudson River to the East River and only a 20-minute trek to either Broadway or Brooklyn.

Packed with main attractions such as Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty, One World Observatory and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Lower Manhattan is the ideal spot to base your NYC stay.

For professionals in the travel trade and travel press, Lower Manhattan can accommodate the FIT tourist, the group booking, the incentive offer, the business trip, the custom luxury excursion and the affordable city break in the heart of the city.
