The Ultimate Guide of Things to Do in the Financial District NYC

The Financial District NYC| Sherita Rankins NYSE

The general rule is, after 10 years in the city, you are officially considered a New Yorker. Personally, I considered myself one way before that time frame (and still do even though I no longer live there). I know it may sound silly, but when I moved to the Financial District of NYC, the city and I had an instant bond. There is so much to love about New York, not counting the rats, the smells, and the cost. But honestly, everything else is fantastic!

I spent nine of my 11 years in the city that never sleeps living in the Financial District, or Fidi, as it's called these days. I was a resident of this neighborhood when not many wanted to be. Fast forward nine years, it's now one of NYC's most desirable areas. If you are planning a trip to the Big Apple, you have to spend at least a day in my old stomping grounds. Here are my recommendations for things you don't want to miss in the Financial District NYC.

Da Claudio Ristorante NYC
Da claudioThe dining options in NYC are endless, but when a restaurant has a delicious menu, rotating specials and is reasonably priced...I'm there (and I usually keep coming back)! A hidden gem in the midst of the Financial District, Da Claudio offers traditional northern Italian cuisine with a modern contemporary flair. The menu offerings include seasonal specialties, homemade pasta, and handcrafted cocktails, so it is no wonder this restaurant became an instant favorite of mine. I wanted to keep this place all to myself, but with food this good, it was only right for me to share Da Claudio with all of you.
Vintry NYC & the Rosé Cobbler
Rose Cobbler It's June, my favorite month of the year! The weather is perfect, fresh produce has never looked better, and it's my Birthday month. There are a lot of ways to enjoy this glorious month, and I like to unwind at Vintry, my favorite New York City cocktail barFor the month of June, Vintry is featuring a summertime favorite - Rosé. They have designed a delicious cocktail, the Rosé Cobbler (recipe below) and have paired it with a couple of dishes from their tasty small plates menu. Vintry - located on Stone St. in the heart of the Financial District, will be donating $1 from each Rosé Cobbler to my favorite charity, the Alzheimer's Association
