WELCOME TO THE LOWER MANHATTAN LIBGUIDE

 

Use this guide to get to know Lower Manhattan.

Within walking distance of Pace University is one of the most interesting and historically significant sections of New York City.  It is the birthplace of the city and the nation.

It was the original capital of the country.  George Washington was inaugurated here and worshipped at St. Paul's Chapel, the oldest public building in continuous use in New York City. The nation's earliest known African American cemetary is located a few blocks from Pace.  The entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge, among the country's best known and most beautiful, is next door to Pace. These and other sites are descibed in this guide and books about Lower Manhattan are housed in the Pace libraries.
