Colonial gentlemen used to "bowl" here, at New York City's oldest park, paying one peppercorn per year for the privilege.

We sat in this small park with a drink for a bit of a chill out and respite for a while. Benches surround the nice fountain and a nice place to sit for a while and grab a bit of peace, as most people do...More

"Bowling Green" at that time had acquired some significance, so I stopped in my tracks when I suddenly espied it! There's a small garden there - a quiet oasis in this humungous city. The iconic Charging Bull, and the Fearless Girl are nearby. The latter...More

This a good place to take a break. it is lined with benches that are quite busy at lunch-time. It's location is between the Battery and the Charging Bull sculpture, but it is fenced and can serve as an oasis on a busy day.

It's a small tiny greenery nearby the Charging Bull and the Fearless Girl. It's very beautiful considering its much less people compare to the main attraction.

Located near Charging Bull and Wall street, it is just a park. Nothing much to see here except Charging Bull.

This is the area where the financial district meets a more touristy area. Attractions like the Charting Bull and Wall Street draw in people and there can be hoards of people at once, especially surrounding the Bull. At the same time, you have the huge...More

We stopped here during a break on a hop on/hop off tour of Manhattan. Its a nice area, but it was way too crowded. Don't even try to get near the bull, the crowds were out of control there.

If your in the area it's another spot on the tourist maps to have a quick look at. Nicely laid out garden with some impressive architecture overlooking the green.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
