New York Stock Exchange

Notable Building in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

Home to the world’s best-known stock exchange (the NYSE), Wall Street is an iconic symbol of US capitalism. Behind the portentous Romanesque facade, about one billion shares change hands daily, 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).
