50 West Street's observation deck for residents (DBOX) 50 West Street's observation deck for residents (DBOX)
As the rise of hybrid work arrangements may bring forth a surge of office conversions and the rethinking of business districts, it is worth remembering that the Financial District did it first: As offices were transformed into residential buildings with historic architecture and interiors, and popular retailers and restaurants were wooed downtown, developers took notice and started building new projects in the area dubbed "FiDi" by some. Only time will tell if the portmanteau catches on, but we can already see that the neighborhood is getting well-populated beyond the 9-5 workday on Mondays through Fridays.

At the tip of Manhattan, The Battery offers gorgeous green space, recreational offerings like the playscape and the Sea Glass Carousel, and spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty, New York Harbor, and the Midtown skyline. But certain Financial District residents do not have to leave their buildings to enjoy outdoor space in the area. A place to enjoy stunning city views has always been at the top of residents' amenity wish lists, and outdoor space experienced a new appreciation in the wake of the pandemic. We take a look at the most attractive roof decks in Financial District condos.
