Stone Street Historic District Tours

Stone Street Historic District
Tucked into downtown Manhattan’s southern tip, the Stone Street Historic District is one of New York City’s oldest areas, with roots dating to the city’s days as a Dutch settlement in the 17th century. Today, visitors head to the restored quarter for a night out at one of its many fashionable restaurants and taverns.
 
The Basics 
Bordered on three sides by Battery Park, Broadway, and Wall Street, the Stone Street Historic District covers Stone Street’s two sections and environs. Named after the stone cobbles originally laid in 1658, traffic-free Stone Street lies in the district’s center and is flanked by 19th-century lofts and warehouses, many converted into eateries. When the weather allows, bench-style tables fill the street, creating a buzzing outdoor dining haunt.

Along with sights such as the 9/11 Memorial and Chinatown, Stone Street is featured on many downtown Manhattan and Wall Street walking tours. Travelers seeking extra historical flavor can explore the area with costumed actor-guides who chart the evolution of the Financial District. Or, opt for an Alexander Hamilton–themed walk that spotlights locations linked to the 18th-century statesman, the inspiration behind the hit musical Hamilton.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Stone Street Historic District is a must for history, architecture, and food enthusiasts.
  • The district consists of Stone Street and neighboring Pearl Street, South William Street, and Coenties Alley.
  • The area is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
 
How to Get There
The easiest way to reach Stone Street is by subway—get off at Whitehall Street, a short stroll away. Alternatively, if you’re on Broadway, catch the #X28 bus from Broadway/Broome Street to Battery Place/Greenwich Street, and make the 7-minute walk from there. Drivers will find several paid parking garages in the vicinity, with the nearest on South William Street.

When to Get There
To rub elbows with financial workers on break, visit Stone Street on a weekday, during lunchtime or in the early evening. Or go on a weekend, when sightseers take over. Summer is always busy, but the district is especially charming in winter, when the occasional snowfall adds to the atmosphere.
 
Dive Into the Stone Street Oyster Festival
Every September or October, Stone Street stages a daylong oyster festival as part of New York’s Oyster Week. The cobbled street fills with bar and restaurant stands serving freshly shucked oysters, fish-and-chips, pints of beer, and Champagne, drawing foodies and fun-lovers well into the evening.
