Wall Street, New York City

The beating heart of New York's financial district, Wall Street has become synonymous with the U.S. market. You'll see the New York Stock Exchange, the New York Mercantile Exchange, and the New York Board of Trade all located on this street. In the 17th century a defense wall stood on the site, which gave rise to street's name. After the wall was demolished and as the financial district grew, the street's location came to mean that it was the main trading area. Absorb the neoclassical architecture while walking among suited New Yorkers rushing between buildings. Consider a visit to the New York Stock Exchange viewing platform to watch the wild trading down below.
