52 Places to Go in 2015 - The New York Times

By: Paolo Singer | The New York Times

Lower Manhattan, # 16 on The New York Times list of the world’s best places to visit in 2015.

Ground Zero is in the midst of a remarkable comeback.

More than a decade after 9/11, the southern tip of Manhattan is becoming one of New York City’s most vibrant neighborhoods. The long-awaited One World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial, which opened last year, will soon be surrounded by an appealing array of dining, shopping and lodging establishments. A stunning transportation hub designed by Santiago Calatrava will join the Fulton Center and its dazzling oculus. Eataly, Mario Batali’s ultra-popular food hall, will soon have a sister location downtown. Brookfield Place (formerly known as the World Financial Center) is completing major renovations to make way for over a dozen upscale boutiques, a second food market, and a restaurant by the celebrity chef Joël Robuchon. The new Pier A Harbor House offers fresh seafood, craft beers and hard-to-beat harbor views. Also underway: a series of luxurious condominiums and lodgings, including the Beekman Hotel, set in a turreted 19th-century building with ornate interiors.
