Forget Fifth Avenue — trek to one of these neighborhoods, where you can hit several different cultural spots in one fell swoop...
Start your downtown tour at the Museum of American Finance (48 Wall St at William St; 212-908-4110, moaf.org), a fitting institution for the United States’ economic epicenter. Meet the country’s most infamous white-collar criminals in “Scandal! Financial Crime, Chicanery and Corruption That Rocked America,” which tracks the history of financial wrongdoings. (Or wander through “Alexander Hamilton: Lineage and Legacy,” if you’d rather learn about one of the good guys.)
