An interesting and educational tour of the Federal Reserve Bank system. Our tour guide Anna was very kind and answered lots of questions. My daughter enjoyed seeing the millions of dollars of shredded money and getting to go down in the gold vault. If you're interested in this tour, they only offer 50 tickets per day. The tickets are free... More

Need to book well in advance and take ID with you to get in . We took passports. It was very informative even saw the vault which was great. Tour was free and got a packet of old shredded money as a momento

We enjoyed this tour of the federal reserve bank. You have to check the website early in the morning 30 days in advance and show up early for it to go through security. The highlight was taking the elevator to see the vault.

Couldn't get in for a tour. Armed guards to keep you away unless you have tickets for their free tour. We were told you need to plan six months or more on your day and time to get in. They suggested maybe a year ahead for the tour of the gold reserves in the basement. The area and building are... More

Not really much to see from the outside just a building with bars on the windows, I never got to go in, not sure if that is even possible.

The process for booking a tour of this place required way too much planning and so we ended up just being content with a walk past the exterior. A nice enough looking building, but probably the real attraction is what lies inside. We will have to plan better next time!

Great informative tour, interesting and something a bit different. Book free tickets on-line a month in advance, they go really fast.

A fascinating experience, made even better by the fact that it was free! You have to time ticket buying perfectly as the tickets come out a month before the tour, and at local time. Places are very limited so make sure you keep an eye open for them. The tour guide was absolutely brilliant, and knew her stuff. She was... More

First off, make sure your aware of the booking procedure as the places go fast!! Really interesting tour and is only an hour so if the economics go over your head the visit to the gold vault five stories underground is worth a visit alone! Our guide Maureen was very knowledgeable and made for an even more enjoyable experience Also,... More

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.
