"Street under construction"

West Broadway only runs for about two blocks through the Financial District; it's pretty lackluster through this part of the city and there's not a lot going on. There's nothing in the way of bars or restaurants and there's basically nothing to do at all. This street is incredibly busy during the day due to tourists and the banking set but it's completely dead at night because of the lack of a nightlife scene. The apartments are really expensive too. I kind of don't understand that because while most of the buildings in the area are luxury apartments, this street is pretty far away from any / all social activities. On the plus side, public transportation is great on this chunk of West Broadway. On the minus side, it's great because it's right off of Ground Zero. And, there are people everywhere trying to get a look at the hole. It's hard to get around them during the day.
There's a really sad story of a building on the corner of Park and West Broadway. There was a massive building that was donated to the Community College right here. It was the largest donation ever given to a Community College and it was irrevocably damaged in the 9/11 attacks. The rest of the street is under construction because of the attacks aside from the Federal Office Building which is a really pretty building but serves as a mail sorting office. The street ends at the future site of 2 World Trade at Ground Zero. It's just a depressing part of West Broadway to live on and there are way too many tourists.
