  • Quite simply we booked for free online on the website of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York on tour and visiting for December. We chose as the 14 hours (Alternatively the 13) just 25 people at a time. Compiling the data coming in real time the reservation ready to be printed. After the checks were accessed in the Museum. Inside forbidden to take pictures. Exposed illustrative panels where the English speaking guide explained the role of the Central Bank of America from birth up to the present day. With an elevator was entered many floors underground to visit the reserve of bullion in the vault. Nothing to write home about. At the end of the tour as a souvenir gave a small bag containing dollars "worn" crumbled.

  • Free tour is worth going to if you are in the city - you get a small bag of shredded cash at the end too! I think the tour could have been a little more informative though, particularly with juicy stories from the 2008-09 crisis. Which secret entrance did all the bank executives take to avoid the media during the Lehman weekend? How about the story when AIG walked over tens of billions of bonds as collateral to the NY Fed? Details!
  • 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. They explain and take you to different places in the circuits of money. However, photos are not allowed here.
  • Well! well! well! ...I received a call today saying I have been granted to receive $9000. Like, I told the lady who would not want to accept $9000. So, as she talked and I listened of course I made her repeat herself a couple of times, which I already knew it was a scam but I let her think she was talking to a foul. Anyway, she gave me a number to call and of course no one answered until later this woman called me back, which i had her to repeat the same info again. After all of that this is were the money party come in, she then told me I could get the money but had to deposit $149 to get $9149 back. I told her I did not have that kind of money so of course she made it sound legit by saying it will be held at the Federal Reserve Bank then sent me these forms where the money will be held until I make the deposit. Please people this is a total scam please do not fall for this. Thank you for reading.
  • Does secret foreign transactions, not accountable or auditable by the US Government.
  • If you are in a right path you will find the correct way if you are not than it will lead you to the scam. just be positive.
