The Seal of New York, found on the State flag, dates back to the 18th century. Justice to the right stands in blindfold representing the impartiality of the judicial system, while Liberty stands over a crown representing freedom.
One of the earliest depictions of the seal can be found in St Paul’s Chapel in downtown Manhattan. A part of the historic district that has served the local community since 1766.
The Financial District of Lower Manhattan, also known as FiDi, is located on the southern tip of Manhattan in New York City. The City of New York was created in the Financial District in 1624, and the neighborhood roughly overlaps with the boundaries of the New Amsterdam settlement in the late 17th century.
Although the term is sometimes used as a synonym for Wall Street, the latter term is often applied metonymously to the financial markets as a whole (and is also a street in the district), whereas "the Financial District" implies an actual geographical location.
The points of interest that you shouldn't miss in the FiDi are: the Charging Bull in front of the Cunard Building, the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Hall, the Federal Reserve, the One World Trade Center and the 9/11 Memorial. I would suggest to combine the trip to the FiDi with an half a day trip to Liberty Island and Ellis Island.

No filter. It sure is pretty down here. On an errand and ducked into @nyhrc at Whitehall. Wow. I knew it was the new and fancy club. I had no idea *how* different: a difference in kind, not degree. Especially for swimmer. 60 feet. Only pool as long as Equinox. Beautiful. Tile work lovely. They really did a nice job. Annoyingly, no locks in lockers.
Jacuzzi okay, not as strong as 20th C 56/6th. But it’s overall the best in city of this chain. No contest. And it’s right off the 4/5. For me a straight shot. No walking to speak of from 59th. #fidi#onaclearday#wallstreet#downtown#batterypark#ues#swimmer#nyc#newyorkerfromLA
