Transportation Around 19 Dutch and Lower Manhattan

Transportation in New York City, especially Manhattan, can be overwhelming and it’s hard to orient yourself in a new place. This is especially true about apartments in the financial district, because this area is facing a transitional time and the neighborhood is changing — fast. It’s exciting to be a part of, but it can also be a lot.

Our guide to transportation around Lower Manhattan and the 19 Dutch building is designed to help you orient faster and understand the many convenient transportation options available to you.

Fulton Street Transit Center Subway Stations

Five subway stations along and around Fulton street are connected by the Fulton Center, a huge project that was completed in 2014. This center is a gorgeous transit hub that makes it easy to access 9 different subway lines. For this reason, Fulton Center is the busiest transit hub in Lower Manhattan.

Lucky for us at 19 Dutch, our apartments are near the subway stations at Fulton Street Center. It’s just down the block — a 2-minute walk from our front door. Here are the lines that you can access from the Center:

  • 2, 3, 4, and 5 lines
  • A, C, J, R, and Z lines

Bus

The MTA bus system can be a great way to get around Lower Manhattan. We are nearby bus stops that service these lines:

  • 9, 55, and 22

These bus lines can take you down to Pier 5, up around Greenwich Village and East Village, and all the way up to the Diamond District.

Taxi

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers travel by taxi every day. This includes yellow taxis, but also ride share apps like Lyft and Uber. Taxis are used to get to work or to run errands and are frequently expensed to companies. They’re also a frequent choice for those catching a lift to the airport.

19 Dutch is located in a big taxi area, so it’s easy to snag a car our front on Fulton Street. Or, our residential concierge will be happy to arrange a taxi on your behalf.

Driving

Driving your own car around New York is also an excellent transportation option. It’s made easier at our apartments with valet services. Never worry about finding a parking spot on the streets of New York City again.

Biking

Biking is also a frequent vehicle of choice for New Yorkers (Over 48,800 use it as a daily commute), and 19 Dutch makes it easy by having a dedicated bike storage room. Residents are free to store their bike in this safe room on the first floor so they don’t need to lug it up and down stairs.

There is a separated bike lane on Broadway, just down the street, that goes all the way down to Battery Park. For a full map of bike paths in Manhattan, visit NYC Bike Maps.

Walking

We love that New York City has multimodal transport, so walking is usually involved, but we especially love that our apartments are near parks and green spaces that are close enough to walk to. Here are some places in walking distance.

  • The World Trade Center and 9/11 Memorial and Museum
  • NYC City Hall and City Hall Park
  • Pier 15
  • Battery Park and the Statue of Liberty Viewpoint
  • Pumphouse Park and Rockefeller Park
  • The Brooklyn Bridge
  • Most Financial District office buildings
