I have newly discovered a cool location near my home called South St Seaport. It appears to be a hip place to hang out. It is surrounded by a bunch of old sea containers, just like those places what we can often find in Estonia - the only difference is that people like to play table soccer instead of ping pong here. There are stores, galleries, food trucks and even a pop-up beer garden! They also host a free outdoor cinema and live concerts during the weekends.
Financial district isn't exactly “boring” after all! ;)
