Hi! I’m Questlove.
Welcome to Lower Manhattan.
New York’s oldest neighborhood is new again.
It’s eighteenth-century cobblestones in the vertical One World Trade Center western hemisphere’s tallest skyscraper.
The capital finance, at home to a fast growing community of creative cutting-edge companies. It’s a new and exciting shopping destination, a place to dream, a place to begin.
It honors our origins, our tragedies, and our triumphs.
It revels in the now, it’s intimate, it’s epic, with amazing places to stay and eat…..it’s a revolution, a revival, it’s a merry-go-round with fun for all ages, a melting pot, a wonderland, all in one.
Symphony steel and stone. It’s a New York you know of but haven’t met yet…Come! To where it all began and where it’s all beginning.
It’s the place where I live and I want you to see lower Manhattan.
Down is what’s up…
