Wall Street is not a tourist spot. It is a street where most world altering financial events occur, but you are not going to see it since it is just a collection of buildings with a massive security presence making sure only those who have official business get in. The only touristy part of WS is the Charging Bull at... More

Visiting Wall Street is interesting, but the NY stock exchange is not open to the public which is frustrating!

A history of the stock market throughout history with a number of interesting exhibits. Not amazing but interesting and worth a visit if you are... More

You can walk around & see the iconic bull, but that's about it. You can't get onto the trade floor so there really isn't anything "to do". If you have limited time in NYC, this shouldn't be on your list.

I hired a guide for a nominal fee that I found on the internet to show me around Wall Street in general and tell about the history of it all. He did a wonderful job and the whole experience was great.

it's nice to see the bull near Wall Street but we never had our picture taken as you had to queue and the queue was quite long but there is nothing more to see than the bull but it was ticked off the places I had visited

Wall Street is a street. That's it. It's not particularly pretty, impressive or even interesting except it's got all the big names in banking on the doors. And there's a charging bull there you can touch and take a picture with and then you can say you've been there and go on to somewhere more exciting.

Worth visiting to see the bull but very little else to see. People watching is probably the most interesting thing, the usual tourists are interspersed with the brokers and high flyers. I'd say walk up, take a look, then walk on to other nearby attractions.
