The expanse of water and skyline you see from our New York office is complemented by the close proximity to some of our best clients, on Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Indeed, while Wall Street remains the center of the financial world, a revitalized lower Manhattan is drawing attention throughout the city.
The great Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava is redesigning a transportation hub inside the World Trade Center, and near City Hall, Frank Gehry's roundly-praised first skyscraper is the tallest residential building on the New York skyline. The magazine publisher Conde Nast is relocating its global headquarters across the street to 1 World Trade Center, and the new W hotel is also just a few blocks from Cleary Gottlieb.
Perhaps most important, flanking our building is the Fulton Street subway, making commuting from anywhere in the city a breeze.
The downtown renovation is not all sweeping architecture and urban transportation, however. Lower Manhattan's historic Greenwich Street, which once meandered from Greenwich Village down to the Financial District, dotting its way with shops and restaurants, is set to once again pass within blocks of Cleary Gottlieb.
