Manhattan’s Financial District has always been about so much more than the coming and going of fortunes; it is a fascinating place freighted with layers of historical significance. The American Revolution made its mark here. The first capital of the United States was located here. The stock market crashes of 1929 and 1987, along with the economic crisis of 2008, haunt the area. And Tuesday, September 11, 2001, forever changed this neighborhood—more than any other—with the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.
