No two neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan are alike. Consider Battery Park City with its verdant waterfront expanses, Chinatown with its colorful, bustling streets, or the Financial District with its buttoned-up hustle and flow.

The spotlights below showcase some of the best each neighborhood has to offer.
