Boundaries: Stretching from the tip of Manhattan to Park Place and east and west from the West Side Highway to the East River
FiDi is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Manhattan. FiDi is comprised of many narrow winding streets with history at every turn. Among the many historic sites is Federal Hall, The New York Stock Exchange and Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel. Trinity Church was destroyed and rebuilt making St. Paul’s Chapel the only surviving structure in Manhattan from the Pre-Revolutionary War period.
FiDi came into its own as a neighborhood in recent years attracting a boom in residents. Residents finally have outstanding food shopping such as Zeytuna, Jubilee and Gristedes, high end retailers Tiffany and Hermes, a wide array of restaurants including Capital Grille & Haru. Residents here enjoy the European style cafes on Stone Street and Front Street. The South Street Seaport bustles in the summer with a wide assortment of shops restaurants, cafes, hotels as well as regularly scheduled concerts, boat rides and tours.
Many office buildings have been converted to condos to accommodate demand in FiDi. This trend continues with newly built 8 Spruce Street, the tallest residential tower in Manhattan at 76 Floors and 903 Apartments
