  • First of all, the registration process is simple but requires good organization because the number of places is limited. "Towers open for ticket reservations at 9 pm, and 30 days in advance of the Tower date." means having well calculates his shot (including jet lag) to be the at the time H. In my case, tickets sold out in less than 1 / 4 h. Then, the day planned, be on time with a margin to pass the security gates, be referred to the exhibition before being taken in charge by the guide (in my case) for a presentation without controversy none of the activities of the Fed. The most impressive rest visit basements and the vision of the gold reserve itself, including the circular door. In the end, an interesting tour, completed in addition by a small gift in output.

Bank building 33 Liberty Street building of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York after a public tender won the design of the architectural firm of York and Sawyer, who represents a throwback to the Florentine early Renaissance.

  • To be able to get into this institution, you must apply for a tour in about 7 days. The period otmeren at quiet times. When there is an influx of tourists, the ticket should be taken care of as soon as possible. In the storage room is 10 000 tons of gold, which placed at 24 km. below the standard level of the soil. There is a separate exhibition centre where it is possible to see the fake banknotes. The Bank is open for viewing the collection of coins, which are considered to be the heritage of the American Numismatic society. Excursions are held 5 days a week for 6 times per day. By the way, all the details on this site have learned from TripsFormer application.

  • Very good tour! A good opportunity to getting to know some of the inner things and everyday tasks in a reserve bank and the business of money, securities and gold custody. Photos are not allowed here.
  • I had a good experience at the federal reserve that included a learning experience as well as good hospitality. The tour guide was really nice and knew the answer to every question that someone asked her. It was fun to learn about the federal reserve, but to be honest there wasn't much to do after we went down to the gold storage. On the tour they should have more then just quotes on a tv screen. For example they could show a documentary on how the federal reserve was made and the process of what the federal reserve does. This would make the experience better instead of standing around looking at a poster with little pictures. Other then that it was a cool building to be in with the great architecture throughout the building. Some things I learned on the trip were that the Federal Reserve holds a quarter of the worlds gold. I found that interesting that countries would trust us with all that gold. I believe we should charge countries to hold their gold because we are doing them a service with little in return except for the title of having the biggest gold storage in the world. I also learned about money and the process it goes through. For example I didn't know the government shredded money to circulate in new money. This made me realize why old money is such a good collectors item because a lot of the old money gets replaced by the new ones. It was also cool how we learned about the stamps that each dollar has that shows where the bill came from. This isn't very important, but I found it very interesting. TBL: The Federal Reserve is a great place to visit for an educational experience and I recommend other schools to go here on a field trip.
  • The fed is a great place to come and visit to learn and explore about the money supply. This place is amazing field trip material for any class. Recently my class has gone on a field trip to the fed and we all enjoyed our time there. You can learn so many great and valuable thing about the country's money supply. Our time there we learned about the foundation of banks and how the fed came to be. It's truly a very good experience for anyone wanting to know more about the country's money supply. I advise anyone who is just eager to learn to go and visit the fed. It is honestly a really good place to go and learn. TLDR: The fed is a good place to have a class trip to Learn about and experience what a federal bank dealing with gold is like.
  • there is a woman there by the name of jennifer banks whom has just possably scammed me.
  • Wolves in sheep's clothing.. er, wool suits.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
