I worked in the financial district as a corporate Real Estate Paralegal for some time and I covered a lot of ground extending from Chambers Street all the way down to South Street at the Seaport, and Wall Street extending East from Pearl Street to the West Side Highway. I actually worked at 1 World Financial Center which was on West St a/k/a the West Side Highway and a great deal of Corporate Attorney's at my firm lived in Battery Park City. So if you are considering a move to that area, Battery Park City would be a great option to start and if you want to get even more for your money consider Downtown Jersey City, which is a 7 minute commute to the Wall Street area from Exchange Place snd it has amazing Manhattan views.
