Wall Street

Vacation Travel Guide
Wall Street - Financial District showing a city and signage

The home of global finance also offers a fascinating historical excursion.

New York City’s central business district is located on the southern tip of Manhattan, and is home to the state’s major government and financial institutions. Many of the world’s biggest business decisions are made in the district, and many of the most influential global companies are based in the area south of Chambers Street. Among these are the New York Stock Exchange, on the world-renowned Wall Street. There are a number of important cultural landmarks in the area, including the former site of the World Trade Center, and Lower Manhattan is a popular destination for visitors wanting to discover the history of the area, see the impressive array of architecture or pay their respects to those lost during the September 11 attacks.

Join a walking tour to get the most from your time in Lower Manhattan. See the old United States Customs House, site of George Washington’s inauguration, as you learn about the United States’ political history. Walk down Wall Street, home to Trinity Church, a Federal Reserve vault that houses billions of dollars’ worth of gold underground. Visit the New York Stock Exchange and enter the building to see the frenzy of activity that occurs as trading begins.

For a more solemn experience, pay your respects at Ground Zero, the former site of the World Trade Center. Today, there is a memorial at the site, and construction has begun on rebuilding on the site.

Wall Street and Lower Manhattan is located below Chambers Street in Manhattan. Visitors can reach the area by car; however, free parking is limited and the roads are always crowded. Arriving by public transportation is easy, and there are a number of subway stations that serve the area. Wall Street and Lower Manhattan can be visited daily; however, most of the business activity occurs during business hours. There is no fee to visit the area.
