From Our Residents
Class of 2019
The Financial District (FIDI) consists still
very much of a neighborhood in a name.
The heritage of industry and finance
carries over into this rapidly changing
neighborhood. Much of the population
lives and works in FIDI during business
hours, inhabiting Wall Street institutions
of old. However, that culture is changing
with new residencies and dining options
appearing each week, attracting much
more than the “9-5 crowd”.

1. East Harlem has the community feel
of northern Manhattan, but with the
opportunities for fun and excitement
of southern Manhattan and Brooklyn.
You’re close to parks, museums, and
trains to take you quickly to any part
of any borough, but you also get to
know your neighbors and the people
who run the shops and restaurants.
2. Museum of the City of New York!
For outdoor fun, Central Park and
Randall’s Island. Any available street
tacos are a must, and Ey’s Kitchen
for weekend brunch.
3. Accessible, affordable, and with a
sense of community and culture that
rivals any other neighborhood.
