While I was looking up things to do in. Central Park during our stay in New York, I came across New York Classical Theatre. I must say this was the highlight of our trip. The actors put on a brilliant show portraying Shakespeare's comedy, "A Mid-Summer's Night Dream". There were a few moments that we laughed so hysterically, while other... More

We saw "As You Like It" while visiting NYC with our kids, 15 and 11. We were all fully drawn in by the end of the first scene. Acting was excellent by any standard--emotional and engaging.

I discovered New York Classical Theatre's free outdoor summer performances about four years ago, and they are a treasure. They are currently performing in Battery Park, July 1 -27, Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT, and it is a fun experience. Bring comfortable shoes (you move around between scenes), a blanket to sit on, and prepare to see free Shakespeare in... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
