When I first started in real estate, I was working as a rental agent exclusively in the Financial District. At that time, FIDI still carried the stigma of a “ghost town after 6:00 p.m.” and very few people wanted to live down here. I was so enthused I moved down here myself and spent five years living in FIDI. I have witnessed the transformation and rebirth of this vibrant neighborhood into a 24/7 residential destination. The area now bustles with a dynamic and eclectic mix of people from all walks of life. Also, it’s extremely exciting for me to see all of the projects we have been following for the past ten years come to fruition. From the Freedom Tower site to the Fulton Transportation hub, 2014 should be a year filled with exciting openings and new developments.


The Financial District (FIDI) has always been a special place to me and Platinum Properties.







Daniel’s Neighborhood Picks:


01Stone Street

52 Stone St

This quaint, cobblestone street is taken straight out of Europe! It is littered

with bars, great dining, and live music. During the summertime they put

tables and chairs outside and there is no traffic allowed.


02Esquires of Wall Street

14 Wall St #3

One of the oldest barber shops in FIDI, Esquires of Wall Street is a classic old

time barber shop. Designed with mahogany and marble, it epitomizes the flavor

of Wall Street.


03Imagination Park

2 Fulton St

Located in the South Street Seaport, this playground for children encourages

children to use their imagination to play!


04Harry’s Bar and Grill

1 Hanover Square

One of my favorite restaurants in FIDI – it’s a great mix of American food and

steakhouse. Get the French onion soup and the hangar steak, you can’t go

wrong. It’s also a great spot for brunch with unlimited champagne.


05The Fulton NYC

121 Fulton St

Great sports bar for fans looking for a place to watch the games on Sundays.

More than just a typical sports bar, The Fulton incorporates a gourmet twist into

your classic bar food.
