RENT A BIKE! It's worth the money and you get to see A LOT in less time than walking. Wall St was really busy, so I couldn't squeeze in a picture with the Bull since there were just way too many people by it trying to do the same thing that I was. Lol. There really isn't much to do... More

While Wall Street was busy with people there didn't seem to be the rush and atmosphere that I was expecting. And why was the stock exchanged surrounded by a fence? It left it looking like a big open, lifeless space. A disappoitment

Not a whole lot to do on Wall St. It is still mainly for business. It is the Financial District after all. And you can smell the money! However, there are some historical sites worth checking out including: Trinity Church, Federal Hall, and The New York Stock Exchange.

We were going to Ground Zero and its close by so swung through just to say we did. Can't get close to the bull - people constantly posing or surrounding it waiting their turn. Can't get a pic that doesn't include a bunch of other people. The street is worth strolling through - not much there,

When you hear the name Wall Street, you can't help but think of the stock market and the world of business. But in reality, it is just a street. You can walk by the New York Stock Exchange and find an occasional museum, but otherwise there is not much to do. I think most who visit do so primarily because... More

A magnificent modern day sculpture that takes up most of the path in the Financial District. There was an ugly fence around the bull when we went to see this in order to control the crowds so everyone could see.

If you go to the wall street, as you can imagine, there is a fence which prevents you from gettong to close to the entrance. You can take some pictures from the distance, that's all

Walking through Wall street early in the morning is definitely one to do, we got off the subway at Wall st then walked through the financial district down to Battery Park for the 8:30 ferry to Liberty Island. Walking down there at that time of the morning gave it a very dark and ominous feel, almost like you were walking... 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.
