    Big Bull

    The Wall Street Bull

    If you go to Battery Park or The Statue of Liberty, it is well worth walking back via Wall Street which is only a couple of minutes away. Although I didn’t have much time here, it was worth stopping off to get a glimpse of the massive Wall Street Bull which can apparently be rubbed for luck.

    Where Fortunes are made and lost!

    New York Stock Exchange

    Wall Street; this was just a short walk away in the area known as the Financial District. Everybody in the world must surely have heard of this most famous street, where so much of the global economy can be strengthened, or weakened, depending on the thinking of the high flying whiz kids working on the stock exchange market here.
    The road containing the stock exchange was cordoned off by a strong police presence, but it was still possible to get very close and take some pictures.

    the New York Stock Exchange

    Adjacent from the historically attractive Federal Hall in lower Manhattan is the commercially attractive New York Stock Exchange. What most visitors see is the pillared facade of a building that supposedly sits on a street where the sun never shines (my photo refutes the notion). With security heightened after 9/11, the average New Yorker will hear plenty of talk of "buy and sell" from traders leaving for lunch or coffee breaks. Outside visitors can take a free tour and view exhibits. The building and the bustling activity inside truly represent America's commercial vitality.

    N.B. Around the corner of the NYSE toward Trinity Church one will find a placard describing the former site of the Dutch "wall" in Manhattan, the origins of the name "Wall Street."

    In the marvelous town, where each building is more beautiful, than the previous one, Wall street, is mainly the feeling of being in the world's financial center. But in my last visit, the dominating show was more the security apparatus than the site itself.

    It's a pity, what the world is becoming.

    Anyway, I had the pleasure of seeing my Portuguese bank in a privileged location.

    I've been there once more, the nervous apparatus continues, but I couldn't locate my bank. Moved or confusion, I don't know.

    Walk down Wall Street!

    Wall Street

    Wall Street is surprisingly small and narrow, considering its size in terms of financial power and influence. You'll see lots of business people and policemen here, keeping an eye on the stock exchange. You really feel like you're in the dark depths of New York's catacombs when you walk through here.

    The Bronze Bull - Wall St "Bull Market"

    Too Tough To Wilt Under A Slumping Market???

    Walking along Wall Street you cannot miss the huge Bronze Bull standing on an island in the middle of the road. It is the symbol of a rising stock market and is always a favourite of tourists. You can see me patting the bull hoping the market will rise to pay for our holiday.

    Federal Hall

    George Washington's Statue
    2 more images

    Resembling an Ancient Greek temple, Federal Hall was built between 1836 - 1842, originally as the US Customs House. The structure lies on the site of the old City Hall, which dated from 1700 and had served as the US Capitol Building when NYC was briefly the capital of the US immediately after Independence. In front of the Neoclassical façade is a statue of George Washington, erected on the spot where he took his oath of office in 1789. Nowadays, this historic site is dwarfed by the soaring skyscrapers of Wall Street all around.

    India House & Stone Street

    India House - Oct 09
    1 more image

    Completed in 1853, this Renaissance-style mansion was built as the headquarters of Hanover Bank (the building's address is One Hanover Street). By 1870, it housed the New York Cotton Exchange, and in 1925, it became the seat of the distinguished club, India House, which continues to occupy the premises. Right next to it is the small pedestrianised, cobblestoned Stone Street. It runs through one of the few blocks in downtown Manhattan to have entirely preserved old NYC architecture. It is made up of late 19th/early 20th century red-brick townhouses. The charm of the street lies not only in its architecture, but also in that it is entirely used as an outdoor seating space by the numerous restaurants on it. If you happen to be visiting Lower Manhattan on a nice day, then Stone Street is the perfect place to have lunch. Hanover and Stone Streets lie a very short distance from Wall Street.

    The top of the spire - Oct 09
    4 more images

    One of New York's oldest churches, Trinity Church commands a strategic view down Wall Street. Seeing the graceful church dwarfed by the skyscrapers all around makes it hard to believe that its 86-metre spire was the city's highest structure until 1890. Although the existing Gothic Revival structure was built in 1846, it was the third church on the site, with the first dating from 1698. Next to it is an old cemetery where many notable New Yorkers are buried. Trinity Church is an Episcopalian church.

    40 Wall Street

    283 metres high - Oct 09
    1 more image

    The world's highest building for just under two months in 1930, 40 Wall Street was one of three buildings in Manhattan to race for the title. The other two were the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building, each of which did win the crown, but the latter was the ultimate winner. 40 Wall Street was the first of the three to be completed in 1930, as the headquarters of the Bank of Manhattan Trust, which eventually merged with Chase Bank. Its antenna, above its pyramidal copper roof, gives it a total height of 283 metres. The building is infamous for having a small plane crash into it in 1946! Nowadays, the landmark building is officially called the Trump Building, but everyone refers to it by its street address.

    Wall Street district

    We took a walk around Manhattan and found our way to this financial district. A lot of people make and lose money here. Michael Douglas glamourised it! It's surroundings gave the feeling of hope and desire to be rich!

    Visit Wall Street if you aspire for this.

    Want to know what all the world's financial fuss is about? Visit Wall Street during a normal weekday morning. This beehive of activity leaves you as boosted with adrenaline as the people who actually work here. Be sure to arrive very early if you don't want to line up to watch the madness inside.
