Wall Street, New York City

The beating heart of New York's financial district, Wall Street has become synonymous with the U.S. market. You'll see the New York Stock Exchange, the New York Mercantile Exchange, and the New York Board of Trade all located on this street. In the 17th century a defense wall stood on the site, which gave rise to street's name. After the wall was demolished and as the financial district grew, the street's location came to mean that it was the main trading area. Absorb the neoclassical architecture while walking among suited New Yorkers rushing between buildings. Consider a visit to the New York Stock Exchange viewing platform to watch the wild trading down below.

    Wall Street, how many times you've heard of and is obviously one of the many places that guests visiting NYC has to visit. It is the scene of many American tv films and serials but also of many stories disastrous or finished in real economic glory; You'll find walking along Broadway the walk will end once you get to the big bull and the little girl fearlessly symbols of this place. Along the way you'll see the stock exchange, Federal Hall, the Federal Reserve Bank and the building of the New York Stock Exchange at the heart of "business" in America and around the world. To see.

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.
