Brookfield Place, formally known as the World Financial Center, is a complex of office towers, high-end retail, and restaurants located opposite One World Trade Center. The Winter Garden, a huge and beautiful atrium stand as the center piece, with large glass windows facing West, looking out on to the North Cove - where many outlandishly large luxury yachts preen for the masses - and further out to the Hudson and New Jersey.
Large open space links the walkways between Battery Park City and Hudson River Park. In warm weather restaurants open out-door seating, and the area proves to be an excellent spot to soak up rays and watch the city drift by. Great place to have a drink and watch the sunset.
While home to the financial powerhouses Amercian Express and Merrill Lynch, as well as a few small boutique Investment Banks, the real draw is as destination spot for dining , shopping and entertainment.
Concerts are held outdoors in warm weather, and in the Winter Gardens in the winter. Holiday events and ice skating are popular in the winter.
In addition to its proximity to One World Trade and the 9/11 Memorial, nearby attractions include the Hudson River Park a lovely park along the river with a great playground and the Irish Hunger Memorial as well as an 11 screen movie theatre.
