Photo by myself at Stone and Pearl Streets, in the Financial District.
You'd be surprised by parts of the Wall Street area. Some of the oldest streets in Manhattan are here, lined with buildings with an Old World flavor.
The Manhattan street grid is non-existant in this neighborhood, and narrow streets twist and turn. Mark reminded me that ships once docked here and merchants traded goods in the streets. You can almost hear the clamor of history.
Above, Ulysses' House offers a full menu of hearty food, beer and spirits. I'm sure it's packed with financial types during lunch and after hours.
I am certain this street has been featured in movies. It is absolutely charming, only a few blocks away from the New York Stock Exchange. I don't know this area well, so each turn of the corner was like making a discovery.
