Platinum Properties is FiDi-central and FiDi-proud. As a premier real estate brokerage for those wanting to invest, buy, rent, and sell in the Financial District, we have been headquartered in the true heart of Wall Street for over a decade and have been an integral part of the neighborhood’s revitalization post 9/11. We work here, live here, and play here, and have become a part of this growing and dynamic community.

Recently, we took our new 2016 agents on a Wall Street walking tour with Free Tours by Foot so they could truly appreciate the steep and often unknown history of our surrounding area: the front steps of Wall Street; our neighbor, the New York Stock Exchange; the impressive height of the Freedom Tower; and the landmark entrance used by the first immigrants through Bowling Green into New Amsterdam, the original Dutch Colony. They gained new insight into this unique area: “I had no idea that Battery Park City is basically one giant landfill,” said Jennifer Davis, a Platinum agent. “I also found it interesting that Federal Hall was our nation’s capital before D.C.”

Our Wall Street guide, Renee, was full of FiDi trivia, keeping us engaged throughout the entire tour—and literally on our feet! Said Alex Buffin, an intern for Platinum, “The tour was a great way to experience the Financial District in a new and exciting way. It was so informational, and an awesome way to relay fun facts about the area to future clients!”

Being truly immersed into the streets of the Financial District was a positive learning experience for our agents. According to Krystal Gross, “I didn’t realize there was so much history in lower Manhattan!”
