Now that the area has residential buildings there are services as well as more restaurants. On a warm day there are many people at the various establishments. The Statin Island Ferry is close by to take a free ride and gat a view of the skyline. There are shopping streets as well.

If you have young children be aware, a lot of people get really raunchy with the bulls male parts. I guess what ever floats their boat but I wouldn't want to explain what they are doing if a child asked.

The only thing you can do there is to take a picture of yourself with one of the many "Wall Street" street signs and take a picture of New York Stock Exchange. Otherwise it is just an average street and do not expect more from that. Also during weekends there ale only tourists hanging around and many shops are closed.

There is a reason why this place is the financial capital of the US.. and therefore by default, probably the world. The institutions in a one block radius are incredible. Apart from the stock exchange itself located at the end of Borad street..just three doors down..at 40 broad street sits and unassuming small building housing the NY Bitcoin center. This... More

If it weren't for the fact that Wall Street is the financial center of the US, it wouldn't be worth the time to go there, in my opinion. It's much smaller and in a crowded, small area of NYC and kind of disappointing when you visit. When you see it on TV, it looks a lot better.

SKY scrapers very neatly and nicely built, like an artist's painting. Just walking through is itself a pleasure. It starts from Bowling green park, charging bull and if you walk through the bug buildings, we can also see many big companies and offices. Just walk through seeing the big and beautiful buildings and enjoy.

I am not sure what I was expecting when I went to have a look at the "famous" wall street, maybe I was in the wrong spot, but it was more like a wall laneway! It was interesting to got to wall street whilst in New York, but there was not a lot to see other then buildings..

It is considered by some "just another street" but to anybody who understands the New York Stock Exchange, you know this is more than just another street! There is a lot of history here and that is what Wall Street needs to be appreciated for. If you go to wall street with a "thrill seeker" mentality then you're in the... More

Fun to see Wall Street and walking along the streets and see the gorgeous building of the exchange. Make sure you stop and get a picture with the Bull.

Obviously Wall Street is significant historically speaking ... but as someone visiting unless you are getting a tour inside one of the Trade Centers (I don't even know if they offer them) ... then it is kind of boring ...
