The Metro is located on John Street, just a few blocks from the heart of the Financial District, Wall Street. It’s just a block in either direction to a bevy of different subway lines, so getting in, out of and around the city is a total cinch. The Financial District is one of the fastest growing residential neighborhoods in the city, and with the residential growth comes the addition of Starbucks coffee stores, Duane Reade pharmacies, groceries, bars, restaurants and more. The beauty of the area is that while it’s full of loud, angry suit-wearing types during the day, come night, it quiets down.

Why You Would Want to Live Here

The Metro isn’t chock full of amazing amenities, but the building offers spacious light-filled residences with updated kitchens and baths. It’s an old building that’s undergone a renovation, and those who converted it took great care to make sure they preserved the original grandeur of the building. These days, the Financial District is one of the greatest places to live – it’s up and coming enough to still be relatively inexpensive by New York standards, but it’s also full of hot spots and apartments big enough for a full dining room table. There’s a doorman and a concierge, there’s just not a gym. In other words, for the price and the looks of it, The Metro is a great Financial District apartment building.
