World famous location and maybe the most famous street on the east coast. The Bull is well worth the visit and picture. I would say go with a group to help block others from getting in your pictures. Also, get up on the bull if you can. The NYSE is fun to see and the amount of guy in suit... More

Since its a world famous place its worthwhile having a look, but the tall stories about the Bull is amusing & its so funny that people believe that it brings "GOOD LUCK" if you touch it! Its so crowded that its difficult to take a photo of the Bull without people around it. All in all it was fun.

Now surrounded by security, this little street is still a place to see, just to say you have seen and been there. Mostly a pedestrian street, no cars to fight with.

The bull, the bowling green and the hustle and bustle of the financial district. It's great to finally walk down a street that you only ever saw in the movies. Something i'll probably only do once in a lifetime living in the UK

Go on a weekend and wander through the Wall Street Area to catch a glimpse of the NYSE and other major financial exchanges. Other than that, there isn't much to see as a tourist, may be take a picture of NYSE- world's largest stock exchange per total market capitalization of its listed companies. Wall Street is a km long street... More

Was great to see the NY stock exchange and the famous bull, took a bit of walking to track the bull down though. Busy area with some cafés dotted around for you to grab a drink or a bite to eat. A must visit place when in NYC.

Took the subway down to Wall street at noon, figured there would be many lunch places and outdoor cafes. Not so. We got back on the subway up to Bobby Van's.

I'm glad I saw the Wall Street Bull, definitely a classic icon of New York. But to be honest, it was underwhelming. Perhaps it was the day I went, a Saturday. It was just surrounded by tourists. So perhaps a working week day would have been better. For me, getting the photo was a bunfight, but on the whole all... More
