Vacation Travel Guide

Wall Street - Financial District showing a city and signage

The U.S. home of global finance offers a fascinating historical excursion. Nearby, visit the site honoring those involved in the fatal events of September 11, 2001. 

Near the southern tip of Manhattan is New York City’s Wall Street, one of the world’s most active and influential financial districts. Walk through canyons created by wide buildings in which some of the world’s biggest business decisions are made. The area also has major government institutions and a famous national monument.

Many influential global organizations are based in the area south of Chambers Street. Among these is the New York Stock Exchange on world-renowned Wall Street, where frenzied activities happen behind closed doors between opening and closing bells. Visits are no longer offered. Instead, read the mood of the day as traders exit after the exchange closes.

Look for a number of important cultural landmarks in the area. Lower Manhattan is a popular destination for visitors wanting to discover the area’s history, see the impressive array of architecture or pay their respects to those lost during the September 11 attacks.

Join a walking tour to get the most from your time in Lower Manhattan. See the old United States Customs House, site of George Washington’s inauguration, as you learn about the United States’ political history. Walk down Wall Street, home to Trinity Church and a Federal Reserve vault that houses billions of dollars’ worth of gold underground. Reserve a free Fed tour online.

Pay your respects at the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum built on the site of the former World Trade Center. Revisit the story of events before, during and after the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001. Appreciate the spirit of hope and renewal conveyed by the manmade waterfalls and reflecting pools at the spot that was known as Ground Zero after the attacks.

Wall Street and Lower Manhattan are located below Chambers Street in Manhattan. You can reach the area by car; however, free parking is limited and the streets are usually crowded. Take a taxi or use public transportation with a number of subway stations and bus stops serving the area. Walk through Wall Street and Lower Manhattan at any time, but most business activity occurs Monday through Friday during business hours.
