Sunday Night in the Financial District

It is extremely busy living in the Financial District.  During the week it is full of office workers and tourists visiting famous sights and landmarks.  At the weekend it is slightly quieter, but the tourists still come in droves.  However, on Sunday nights the area is almost deserted and it is my favourite night of the week in the Financial District.

It can become quite frustrating living in such a busy area.  It takes ages to walk anywhere, people stop suddenly in front of you or take up the entire pavement so you end up walking in the road.  That said, on Sunday evenings I can walk freely on the streets and really look at the amazing architecture that I am normally to busy to notice.  Now is the time to have your picture taken outside the New York Stock Exchange or with the famous Wall Street Bull.  

There are many great restaurants in the area and on Sundays you can always get a table without waiting or being squashed into a tiny space.  There are still enough people about to create an good atmosphere, but it has a much more relaxed and peaceful feel.  

If you haven't ventured down to the Financial District I would recommend visiting on a Sunday evening, although don't tell too many people as I wouldn't want it to get too busy!
