Forgettable - which pretty much sums it up. Easy to miss. You'll probably pass it without even knowing.

if you like movies, this spot cannot leave behind. It's just a quick place for a photo and that's it. The only advantage are the nice restaurants around so you can grab some nice food while visit a popular spot.

Narrow streets barely touched by sunlight even at midday in the summer, you can see why the vampires who are destroying the world flock here. Not much to see, really. Just as soulless as it's coke addled, psychopathic denizens.

I found Wall Street to be dark due to the very tall buildings built so close together, on the narrow streets. Nothing special about this place except the pictures I took - Very near Seaport and Battery Park though.

I didn't do a walking tour but you can get a sense of the crazy money that has been through that street just by being their. The buildings are quite bland so it's not like there is any amazing picture of buildings but Tiffany&Co have a shop :) Ladies you have to go it, it's sooo pretty. at the bottom... More

Visiting a street and seeing exchange building which arguably controls world financial markets can really be exciting! Only problem is the security around the exchange which does not permit to even enter the building. I think there can be a wall or a small gallery developed near the exchange which can exhibit the history of New York exchange and important... More

I happened to walk on Wall Street a few times while in NYC and saw the bull twice and the NYSE, but you can't go inside so nothing really happens. I couldn't get a good picture of the bull because there were too many other tourists there. At least it is pedestrian walking so it is kind of peaceful.

Wall Street was a nice thing to see in NYC. Make sure you take the guided tour as I guarantee you will learn information you had never heard about before, like the origin of the word Yankee for example.

There is something to be said for being at the heart of the US (and global) economy, but because of security, you really cannot do or see much of anything aside from some nice building. We went there before the opening bell hoping to catch some of the excitement. Aside from some tourists at the Charging Bull, there wasn't much... More

Hard not to hang out for a day or two in this area filled with rich history and tradition…..it is best to just take your time and a map….in the beginning, it may seem hard to navigate, but gets much easier with time…...
