  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Summer of 1960 I worked as a 'runner" [ie; messenger] for a Wall Street firm that specialized in trading US Treasury Bills, Notes and Bonds. Every Monday the Fed held an auction of said securities, mostly 90 day "T" Bills. A small number of Primary Dealers (about 12) were allowed to submit bids. These dealers would talk to each other via telephone to get a sense of "the Market" The bids, on hand written cards, had to be in at a special Tellers Window on the first floor by 1:30 pm at which time the window was physically closed. The traders were I worked waited until the last minute to complete their bids and then handed them to me. An elevator was waiting to take me to the ground floor. I had to hit the street (Broad Street) running, from Exchange Place, past Wall, Pine, and Cedar Streets to Liberty Street were the Fed Building sits. I was almost hit by a taxi more than a few times on the way. A number of we runner would flop to the floor after delivering our bids {no benches} until the guards kicked us out, Great memories. As an aside, someone commented that the Fed is on 3rd Street. There is no 3rd Street in the Wall Street area.
  • Fascinating place. Take the tour
  • 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.
  • Impressive architecture for this imposing building, especially considering the gold stored underneath and its importance in the global economy.
