“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Of course, why wouldn't you go here when in NT=Y? It's the biggest financial capital of the world. Easy to view at street level.

“Lovely Building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This isn't a tourist attraction in the same sense as the Empire State Building or Top of the Rock, it's just a beautiful building with some historical and cultural merit. Go see it with this in mind and you'll not be disappointed.

“Hollow not hallowed halls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Last year I and several others were taken down to the Floor during trading hours.The term "trading" is now archane as the only trading you could see was if you looked up at the myriad of screens asscociated with the various kiosks maintaied for the handfull of market makers/specialists now scattered around the once bustling floor.
If you were looking for the yelling,screaming and paper barrages of the past you would have been better off going to Zacccotti Park during the apex of the Occupy Wall Street movement.
No noise,no paper no thrill!

“Boring”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

You can't go inside, and the outside isn't all that exciting. Take a look at a picture and you get the gist of what's going there.

“Home of the Big Crooks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Visit Rikers Island instead -- that's where the denizens of Wall Street belong. The general atmosphere in the neighborhood is strictly expense-account based. Working girls pretending to be Adminisrtrative assistants, or vice versa. Drinks and food designed to impress by their price rather than their quality. "An amusement park for the damned" that's how a 40year resident and NY TIMES editor described the quarter to me.
