What is Wall Street?

Wall Street is the symbol of the US financial system – the largest and most watched stock market in the world.

Where is Wall Street?

Wall Street is a street in Lower Manhattan running east to west.

Why is it called Wall Street?

During the 1600’s, Wall Street was the northern border of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam. The colony had a wall to protect the local citizens. The wall stood exactly where Wall Street is today.  The wall ran from the East River to the Hudson River – all the way across the island! Today we call the area around Wall Street the New York Financial District.

Join our Wall Street tour:

Walk on Wall Street and see the markers where the wall used to be.  We walk by Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Standard & Poors, and the Federal Reserve.

Also on our route is the New York Stock Exchange on the corner of Wall Street and Broad Street. It is across the street from the former office of J.P. Morgan at 23 Wall Street. Also across from the NYSE is Federal Hall, once the capitol building of the United States of America.

On our Wall Street tours, learn more about JP Morgan and John D Rockefeller. We tell you all about their lives, their businesses, and the history of Wall Street.

The founder of the US financial system was Alexander Hamilton.

Hamilton created the system when he was the US Secretary of the Treasury in the 1790s. Alexander Hamilton is famous today because of the Broadway show, Hamilton. The show is about his life. We have a special tour focused on Alexander Hamilton.

Subway to Wall Street

Many Wall Street bankers make 6 and 7-figure salaries and they travel by subway to Wall Street every day. You can take the same NY subway as they do – you will rub shoulders with millionaires without realizing it! That is one of the best things about visiting New York City – you never know what you will see or who you may run into.

Subway to Wall Street from Penn Station

Take the red subway line (2, 3) downtown to the Wall Street stop. It takes about 15 minutes.

Subway to Wall Street from Times Square

Take the red subway line (2, 3) downtown to the Wall Street stop. It takes about 20 minutes.

Subway to Wall Street from Grand Central

Take the green subway line (4, 5) downtown to the Wall Street stop. It takes about 20 minutes. During the NYC rush hour, it can take up to 45 minutes.

The Wall Street Bull

The Wall Street Bull is the symbol of the stock market going higher. A bull market means we are making money!

When you join our Wall Street tour, you will visit the Wall Street Bull and you can rub him for good luck! The Wall Street Bull location is on Broadway where it splits just north of Bowling Green. It is south of Wall Street by several blocks.
