“One of the places you have to see for yourself.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

GO EARLY! We arrived on a Tuesday at 7:30 am.
Wall Street is so small you can see several sights at once, Trinity Church, The Bowling Green Bull, the Federal Bldg. where our 1st president was inaugurated, the New York Stock Exchange, one of the Trump buildings, Tiffanys,etc. Also worth seeing behind The Bull, the old US CUSTOMS House, now the American Indian Museum. It is closed at this hour but it was nice to sit at the bowling green and read the history of that building on my phone.
We were able to meander around sipping coffee sitting on the steps where Washington was inaugurated, watching Wall St. slowly become alive. Food carts being set up with fresh fruit and pastry, sharply dressed employees flooding in getting ready to start their day.
I personally find mentally absorbing Wall Street and the entire Financial District, where our country defined what we are, a fascinating thing. Not boring at all. So happy we went!
On a side note, I highly recommend Cosi restaurant, on Broad St, very close to Wall. Open very early and excellent food and super friendly service. Also a 2 minute walk will get you to Battery Park for an awesome view of Lady Liberty, and 3 minutes the other direction gets you to South Street Seaport, where we met our tour boat for the Statue Cruise.

“Go See Where They Blow Your 401k !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

There are a few things to see in the Wall St area of NYC. You can go see the famous brass bull, the stock exchange, the massive security, and usually a financial show or two taping live outside the exchange. It's well shaded in the area because of the tall buildings and narrow streets so its a good place to get away from the summer heat and sun.

“Is there anything to do here?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

It's a bunch of office buildings and a bunch of people walking in the street. You can't get into the stock exchange or the federal reserve. The federal hall is a nice building but you're in and out of there in five minutes. That's it.
What did I miss?

“Over rated boring place nothing liek the movies”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Midtown is the hub of business and Finance, 80's used to be the Wall Street area not anymore. Here there is nothing in my opinion to enjoy. overprices boring stores. The Hermes store nearby is the only place worth popping into but you cant afford most of the things in there.

“Nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Visited the spot, actually entire Wall St. Good to know, maybe not the most fascinating place to visit in NYC, but worth to see when all the rest is through. Lots of famous skyscrapers along the way, my favorite is Trump Building with some famous law firms parked inside (i.e,, Provda Law Firm, 40 Wall St New York NY 10005, (212) 671-0936) as well as renowned restaurants if you are deep pocketed enough to pay more than $200 for your lunch. Back to Occupy Wall St, it's highly recommended to read some books or just browse online to know the story line. Otherwise you can end up walking in confusion.
