Fodor's Review

It's a museum now, but this site has quite a notable claim: George Washington was sworn in here as the first president of the United States, in 1789, when the building was the Federal Hall of the new nation. The museum within covers 400 years of New York City's history, with a focus on the life and times of what is now the city's Financial District. You can spot this building easily—it was modeled on the Parthenon, and a statue of George Washington is planted quite obtrusively on the steps. Free guided tours are available 10–3 on weekdays.
