“Worth a Look for a Laugh”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Filled with rich or wanna be rich self centered A-holes who only care about their bottom line at the expense of everyone else.

“Awe inspiring”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I walked passed this several times a week when my bf lived on wall st. It was nothing short of impressive - its stature apitimises what it stands for - an impressive structure of historic importance, just like the exhange itself. A shame they don't do tours on the weekend. Please - if anyone really wanted to terrorise the place then surely the exchange has back up computers else where etc...the building isn't that essential to stock operations these days.

“Have to visit but what you see is what you get.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The stock exchange is an iconic image seen in many films and is easily recognized. The only thing is that it is a little hard to find as it is not on a main street and is set back among winding small streets.

All the buildings are just like any building in New York Big and tall, BUT on the old windy streets of the old old city not the usual block system.

Once I got there I was a bit like take a photo "click, click" and lets move on. The location is to be honest a bit odd and not what I expected :-) but you do see an amazing mix of Old world New York with the preserved windy streets and New world architecture. Bit like walking down a small alley way and finding St Paul's Cathedral :-)

“Standing on the outside....”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I understand why you can no longer enter thY Stock Exchange however standing on the street looking at the police and security tent you lose some of the excitement of seeing it.

“Awesome...”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

The heart of the financial world.
A place where billions of dollars change hands and empires
are built or lost.
If you are able please see the Exchange while in session.
Most impressive,fast paced and noisy but hard to fathom
it moves the economies of most countries in Earth.
