Check Out All The Cool Stuff That’s Hidden Behind Goldman Sachs

Goldman Alley

[credit provider=”Julia La Roche for Business Insider”]

If you haven’t ventured behind Goldman Sachs 200 West Street office, you’re really in for a surprise.Behind the tower is a glass canopy-covered passageway that connects the bank and the Conrad hotel.  

The gap between the two buildings is conveniently filled with restaurants and shops among other things and it makes for an inviting space for socializing and relaxing during or after a workday. 

The passageway is officially known as North End Way, but it’s been reported by the New York Times that local residents call it “Goldman Alley.”  

We checked it out and now we’re going to take you on a photo tour of all the cool stuff Goldmanites have right at their back door.
