The borough of Manhattan is filled with iconic buildings, famous landmarks and world-class restaurants. It’s also home to plenty of places that serve to unlock stories of the city’s colorful past. Stone Street Historic District, where one of the oldest streets in Manhattan still exists, is one such location.
The small two-block Mecca of bars and restaurants is located in the heart of the city’s Financial District. The surrounding streets are typically swarming with suits, but during summer months, café tables filled with tourists and local businessmen dot the area. It’s the perfect place to grab a quick bite or a drink on the way to Battery Park or after spending a morning wandering Wall Street and Lower Manhattan.
Stone Street Historic District includes Stone Street, South William Street and Pearl Street, as well as Coenties Alley.
