As a financial person this was sacred ground and a bit of a religious experience. So nice that in the week there are tables and chairs outside for employees to enjoy lunch!

one of many landmarks in NYC that is good to see and tick off the list. Located on wall street its very easy to find. We wandered past early evening and there were still quite a few people milling about. As it gets dark the front is lite up which makes it look nice. Apart from that nothing really to... More

Alexander Hamilton, First Secretary of the Treasury and arguably the father of American Finance, first issued bonds in 1790, to consolidate the debts incurred during the American revolution and thus give credibility to the new nation. Trading in securities started right then: traders would gather under a buttonwood tree and haggle on prices and terms. The Buttonwood Agreement was signed... More

I've always wanted to see what I call "Castle Grayskull," or what houses the "masters of the universe." We were in the area after seeing the gorgeous 9/11 Memorial Museum so what the hey. First off, I thought the building fronts Wall Street but it's actually on the corner of Broad & Wall St. There is security & fencing fronting... More

No tourist access so you may as well go during the weekend when it is closed and less busy. Think it is worth a look as it is so famous. A might-as-well while you explore lower Manhattan.

I find it strange to stand outside a building that is cordoned off to the public and snap photographs, but oh no, we are not allowed in to view the goings on from the inside. Pretty much sums it up, like minions, we are all affected in our lives by the decisions made inside this building but not made privy... More

If you ever get the chance to go into the exchange don't pass it up. I saw it years ago and since the trading is now computerized it is all different but still fascinating. We also got to go to the Board room which is fantastic. Grand, historical and stately building that buzzes with actively.

After a trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island we walked from battery park to Wall Street. On a weekday we found the traders and tourists sharing this neighborhood and this street in particular was pretty cool. Lots of people just hang around the building to take the picture of this iconic building of the financial world. I've... More

Visit this place if you are interested in Business dealings and would want to see it for yourself. High security place, and I am not sure if you can enter it without prior permission. But most folks just hang around outside and take some cool photographs. Walking distance from the charging bull and battery park.
