The Financial District of New York is known for its banking and brokers. It isn’t known for bars. But brokers have to drink somewhere too (before they catch their trains out of town or retreat to their luxury lofts) which is why Stone Street does so well. It’s tucked away from the prying eyes of downtown tourists and close enough to visit for a liquid lunch or happy hour. There are 12 or more bars on this cobblestone street fighting for patrons. On most nights, Stone Street is filled with people spilling out from the various meet markets, sports bars and pubs.
