Fulton Street (Manhattan)
Fulton Street is a busy street located in Lower Manhattan. It is in New York City's Financial District, a few blocks north of Wall Street. It runs from Church Street at the site of the World Trade Center to South Street, terminating in front of the South Street Seaport. The easternmost block is a pedestrian street.
Regular cricket matches were held near the present Fulton Market in 1780 when the British Army based itself in Manhattan during the American Revolution.
The street has a Beaux-Arts architectural feel with many buildings dating back to the Gilded Age or shortly thereafter. The early 19th-century buildings on the south side of the easternmost block are called Schermerhorn Row and are a Registered Historic Place.
After the World Trade Center construction is completed, Fulton Street will extend further west to West Street.
