Located in the South of Manhattan, Wall Street is New York’s business district. Wall Street is the famous American street that runs eight blocks through lower Manhattan, from Broadway to South Street on the East River.
Wall Street is home to the New York Stock Exchange, the world’s largest stock exchange, where traders continue to hawk and scream on trading floors. Because the Wall Street is extremely narrow, the effect of the surrounding skyscrapers is remarkably amplified. At the heart of the non-stop comings and goings of thousands of the neighbourhood’s traders, the street rapidly transforms into a frenetic scene representing the world of New York finance.
Also worth discovering: At Bowling Green Park, you can admire a symbol of strength and power: a more than 3-tonne bronze statue of a bull, by the artist Arturo Di Modica; and Federal Hall, the oldest building on Wall Street which was the United States Custom House once and is now run by the National Parks as a national memorial; Trinity Church, the old 19th century church, surrounded by skyscrapers, which seems to be the sole survivor of the property boom in Lower Manhattan.
