Home to the world’s best-known stock exchange (the NYSE), Wall Street is an iconic symbol of US capitalism. About one billion shares change hands daily behind the portentous Romanesque facade, a sight no longer accessible to the public due to security concerns. Feel free to gawk outside the building, protected by barricades and the hawk-eyed NYPD (New York Police Department).

Frantic buying and selling by those familiar red-faced traders screaming ‘Sell! Sell!’ goes on at the New York Mercantile Exchange , near Vesey St. This exchange deals in gold, gas and oil commodities, but no longer with tourists; like the NYSE, it’s closed to visitors.
