The Federal Reserve Bank of New York Building at 33 Liberty Street, which occupies the full block between Liberty, William and Nassau Streets and Maiden Lane in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City, is the headquarters of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. It is where the monetary policy of the United States is executed by trading dollars and United States Treasury securities.As of September 2015, the building's vault holds $565 million worth of gold bullion and $3 million in gold coins, a little more than 5% of the United States' total gold reserve, and 3.76% of the world's reserves.The building was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1965, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.Building and architectureThe visual impact of the neo-Renaissance structure derives from its monumental size, fortress-like appearance, fine proportions and the overall quality of construction. It set the precedent for many later banks which were greatly influenced by its design.

  • The building looks ok and the police officers in front were very Nice and informative but the place itself i really nothing to travel for Thomas 
  • While it is hard to get places and should be out a month in advance, it attracts much that is free and in General does not disappoint. The tour is only in English so there to follow it, guide speaks very clear and helpful and give you a very interesting screenshot about how works the American economy and take you to see part of the treasure. If you go with time to New York, it is good to do it.

  • A visit to the Federal Reserve is a MUST DO. This is because of the guided tour that it provides to all the visitors. It is an experience of a life time. During the course of the tour they take you do...  read more »
  • The Federal Reserve isn't a government agency. They are a for profit business created by greedy bankers intended to crash the economy and make the rich richer. They are why inflation occurs, and why the Great Depression occurred. If you don't believe me educate yourself. The citizens need to speak up and say "no more Federal Reserve - the government needs to stop privatizing the American currency"
  • This company got me for $750, before I totally understand they were a scam.....PLZ becareful. For its your OWN FAULT, it they woop you out your $$$$
  • Scam and rude! I asked how many times to take my number off thir list and mostly they hang up, and today one person just flat out said NO to me, and then hanged up. I will report your number to the do not call list and to the BBB. Your callers are disrespectful, and that just shows that your company has no credibility, and dignity!
  • The school tours they give are very informative. I would suggest 4th grade and up based on the content. They answer any and all questions that the students (or parents) have. The visit to the 'vault' isn't much to look forward to. You basically ride an elevator down to the vault level and they explain that you can't go into the vault because of security. Understandable. What country wants kids and parents walking around next to their gold?
  • What a creepy building when you stop to notice it. There are only small signs that indicate that this bulding is the federal reserve bank, there are cameras everywhere on it. The poor police guard at the door seems unassuming, the bulding towers above him, its clear that the law is serving the capital.
