Hi everyone,

I'm new to Manhattan, living in Tribeca, working in finance, and I'm trying to see the sights that I can before my job officially starts in a few weeks. I realized today that I've been focusing on the most "famous" attractions (at least to me) which are mostly in midtown - empire state building, Rockefeller center, central park, the museums, etc. Downtown has the stock market and Wall Street, and I'm wondering if this stuff is worth seeing or if it's just a bunch of buildings? I mean, I don't know what I wold do if I went to "see" Wall Street - it seems like most of the interesting stuff probably goes on in the inside, and going to look at the building housing the stock exchange doesn't sound very exciting. Are there good/interesting attractions in the financial district? I've seen the WTC (kind of disappointing - the site, I mean), the woolworth building, BPC, the statue of liberty, and that's about it. What am I missing that I should see or do?

I live in the Financial District.
Wall Street is just a lot of suit, but mostly tourists.
There is Battery Park which I love.

if you work in finance, you should know someone who can hook you up with a tour of the stock exchange. my old roommate used to I-bank at DB and he got me a tour. i have no interest in finance, stocks, etc., but it was interesting. the guy who gave the tour was a character. anyways, if you can get a tour, it's worth the time.
