"Office buildings on the water"

Liberty starts at the park which makes this little run of street pretty prime property. The particular part of the park that Liberty runs into has a yacht harbor (nice view, huh) and Pumphouse Park. There's a little playground, a chunk of the Berlin wall and plenty of grass in this stretch of the park. And, grass is quite the commodity in Manhattan.
The shame about all of this prime real estate with a gorgeous view is that it's pretty much just commercial high rises that line Liberty. The block at South End leading up to West (where the neighborhood changes) is taken up by 1 and 2 World Financial Center. 1 houses Dow Jones and the Wall Street Journal and 2 houses Merril Lynch and Deloitte Touche. I mean, yeah, when you work 12 hours a day banking, it's nice to have a gorgeous view, but they probably have one at home. So, I kind of feel like it's a waste of a view on bankers. But, that's just me.
After West, another neighborhood begins, so you can't live on the street as it runs through this neighborhood.
  • Nice view
  • Only commercial high rises

"Still as poignant."

As New York has so many world famous streets, some of the lesser or adjoining road can get lost in the crush and this may be the case for Liberty Street. The street was renamed after the French revolution and although famous for its close proximity to so many other attractions, the street suffered in the 9/11 events and has undergone some recent renovation work. As with anything from that time, the emotional scars are all too real and although Ground Zero is the main focal point, it is easy to see that you can get caught up in the emotion at this point too.

"Enjoy Peace on Liberty"

Another good street to catch a glimpse of Ground Zero, Liberty Street is located in Battery Park on the southern tip of Manhattan. This is a good place from which to begin your trek into Battery Park. The Ground Zero Memorial is on the street, and well as a loop near the North Cove, where you can catch wonderful views of the Hudson and the of the city. The World Financial City is also nearby. I enjoyed this spot for personal reflection and rest after a long trek through the city. Ideally, I think it would be a good spot to end your day of sightseeing through the rest of lower Manhattan.
