Standing outside an iconic symbol of New York and where Billions are lost and gained really hits you as you walk down the streets where you can see fat cats going to lunch and smoking a cigar outside!

From the daily financial news to blockbuster movies, most will be familiar with the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) building on Wall Street in lower Manhattan. A lovely building facade and nice seasonal Christmas tree in front of the building. That pretty much sums up the experience for the vast majority of people. The NYSE is one of many things... More

If you are ever in Wall Street and want to know what it feels like to be in the middle of all the trade "action", it doesn't get any better than the NYSE. Even Alibaba has made its entrance! You will need to pre-register and bring along a photo or passport ID. Security is tight so be prepared for some... More

As we were staying in an apartment in Wall Street we visited the NYSE - or rather stood well back as you can't get in! but the facade of this iconic building was well worth the time to stand and stare!

Too bad you can only see it from the outside, but it's always interesting to know the place where billions of dollars are trade everyday. Definitely a place to visit.

nice to stop and see this historic money institution. Great for a quick photo op. Go early, because you'll be amazed at all the people wanting a pic of the building and themselves.

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

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
