Popeye & Olive

Popeye & Olive, Plum Guide home in New York

Popeye & Olive, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Popeye & Olive now: from £435 per night If when you hear the words 'Financial District' you instantly picture angry men in pinstripe suits shouting down their telephones to be put through to Tokyo, we're happy to tell you that it's not quite like that. With the development of nearby Seaport, Stone Street and Battery Park, FiDi has evolved in recent years from a corporate hub to become a rather pleasant place to spend some time within. Located between Wall Street and Fulton Street, this apartment is a modern base from which to explore this area and beyond. Although we can't imagine you'll be spending much time in the bright living space when there's one of the greatest cities in the world outside your door, the building's shared facilities do their best to keep you there for a bit longer. An onsite gym will be greeted with open arms by fitness bunnies, while the rooftop deck is a lovely place to catch some rays or exchange stories about your time in the Big Apple with the neighbours. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

With a prime location in Battery Park, you're perfectly positioned to explore nearby attractions such as the Statue of Liberty or the Brooklyn Bridge at your leisure. In the evening, strike out into the Manhattan night to sink a drink or two in sawdust-covered dive bars or frequent glamorous late-night parties. If you're here for work rather than pleasure, or a bit of both, then make use of the in-building business centre, co-working space and lounge with its super-fast wi-fi. To get a total sense of place, take to the roof terrace to soak up some sun on the loungers, take a dip in the rooftop pool or sip a coffee at the numerous tables and absorb the dramatic sights and atmospheric sounds of a truly cosmopolitan city.

When you’re ready to head out and explore, you’re a two-minute mosey from Bowling Green Subway Station connecting you to the heart of the Big Apple where world-class eateries, shops and watering holes await. Should you want to stay local or have a quiet afternoon away from the hubbub, The Battery's leafy green –with its iconic vistas of the Statue of Liberty – is just a two-minute walk across the street.

Brooklyn Bridge can be reached on foot in around twenty minutes, although there are plenty of subway stations nearby if you don't fancy doing the full walking tour of the Big Apple. Back at your temporary home, there's a fully-equipped kitchen for whipping up a hearty breakfast ahead of a day's adventuring, while there's even a business centre in the building if work emails can't be avoided for the duration of your stay.
