Wall Street, New York City
(3.1/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was so much I wanted to visit the area of Wall Street but with all controls you cannot fully appreciate a place so famous worldwide. but then that's fair.

  • I was passing on a Monday evening. There were still lots of tourists taking pictures. It was pretty impressive to know this is where US investment occurs. 
  • At a NY visit is simply part of. You can take photos with the bull, a little look at everything. So much security here. Anywhere very many cameras, police and army.
