Things to Do Near One World Trade Center

May 14, 2016 | Jennifer Goodwyn

One World Trade Center is one of the best business addresses in the world. From the sweeping city views to the ultra-chic offices, this is the best place on the planet to work. The benefits go beyond the office, though. New York is the city that never sleeps, and Lower Manhattan has more than enough to keep you occupied 24 hours a day. From bars to restaurants to museums, here are our favorite spots around One World Trade Center.

You are on the water, so take advantage of it with some freshly caught Maine lobster. This casual financial district spot is the perfect place to go on a lunch break (or get delivered to the office with free delivery). You can get the seafood of your dreams from Lobster Rolls to Lobster Grilled Cheese to Noah's Ark, which is two half rolls of lobster, crab, and shrimp, four crab claws, and everything else you can desire like chips, slaw, and pickles. These authentic, fresh dishes will satisfy any seafood craving.

2. Birds & Bubbles

100B Forsyth Street

New York, NY 10002

(646) 368-9240

This Southern Lower Manhattan spot makes every day a celebration. If Southern cooking is love, then get ready to fall in love over a plate of buttermilk fried chicken, shakshuka, or shrimp and grits. Good Southern meals are never complete without a good drink, and whether it is champagne or whiskey, Birds and Bubbles has your back. This is a can't-miss spot if you are craving a little Southern love.

If you are looking to step up your bistro game, Dirty French is for you. This hot ticket Lower East Side spot is the perfect place to grab dinner after work, or brunch, or breakfast, or drinks, or any reason you can think of to grab food. The French-inspired dishes will elevate your palette, even if you are ordering a basic meal like a burger. Local's tip -- make sure you make a reservation. This spot is popular for a reason, so plan ahead!

4. The Whitney Museum of American Art

99 Gansevoort Street

New York, NY 10014

(212) 570-3600

This hidden gem is an art lover's paradise. In the financial district, just a few blocks away from One World Trade Center, the Whitney boasts outstanding design and rotating exhibits that will blow your mind. Away from the crowds of the larger museum, this spot is a local's secret. If you become a member, you can even skip the line. From free public tours to exclusive art parties -- there is something at the Whitney for everyone.

Lower Manhattan is often an overlooked gem. With quick trips like a ferry around the Statue of Liberty, or hidden culinary gems, there is always something to do. Working at Servcorp's One World Trade Center location gives you the opportunity to work in the best spot in New York, and have some fun while you are doing it.
