The Financial District is downtown’s business nerve center, crowded with stately banks, high-rise offices and sleek condos. Post Office Square, home to Norman B. Leventhal Park, offers a green respite with a lawn, sculptural fountain and garden trellises. Suited professionals frequent the district’s chain eateries, lunch spots and high-end coffee shops. Swanky lounges and boisterous Irish pubs draw after-work crowds.
