New York City is unlike few other places in the world, thanks to the rich history and diversity of its neighborhoods. South of 14th Street, Lower Manhattan has a different energy than the hustle-bustle of Midtown with its iconic skyscrapers or the townhouses and streets of the Upper West Side.
Here, you’ll find Greenwich Village, which includes the West Village and Meatpacking District; the Whitney Museum for American Art; the High Line; Nolita; the vintage stores and lofts of NoHo; New York University; the Angelika Film Center; the Public Theater; the food and festivals of Little Italy; the cuisine and culture of Chinatown; the planned community of Battery Park City; the South Street Seaport; the famous Brooklyn Bridge; and the fast-paced Financial District.

At Belluck & Fox, LLP, our dedicated New York City mesothelioma lawyers have been helping accident victims for more than 20 years.
