Originally named Leo Astor and Leo Lenox for the patrons of the New York Public Library, these lions were renamed by Mayor LaGuardia in 1930 for the virtues New Yorkers would need to survive the depression. There is nothing depressing about this noble pair.

Geographically, "Lower Manhattan" encompasses everything south of Midtown. We use this term, for simplicity's sake, to include the southern tip of the island from Battery Park City, the Financial District, and the South Street Seaport. Coming north on the west side are Tribeca, Soho, Greenwich Village, the Meatpacking District, Chelsea, and the Garment District. On the east side are Chinatown, Noho or NoLita, Union Square, the Flatiron, Gramercy, and Murray Hill. Each neighborhood is a world unto itself--so explore them further here and on foot.
