Not what I thought....just a large building on a crowed street....if you like crowed places this is for you..
We visited as part of a walking tour. There are many other tourists and it is worth a Kodak moment. There isn't much there otherwise. Bustling, suited Wall Streeters running between meetings and coffees mingle with tourists here. A lot of security surrounds the area. Surrounding area is interesting as well, Ground Zero notably.
We visited pretty much due to the film 's and historical influences. It is really easy to find and the whole area is full of historical financial buildings such as J P Morgan. The whole area has nice street which show the historical financial significance combined with the current financial buildings. It is tastefully done. Not a lot to do... More
For most people, taking the time to visit Wall Street and/or to see the Bull will not be worth the effort. If you are really into investing or are curious, you should probably take a walking tour. Otherwise, you will be bored walking down Wall Street.
Hectic, cliched and strangely thrilling. It is the origin of much of the globe's pulse, the source of most financial activity and the scene of reckless and stupid risk taking that has put the world in immense peril. Hmmmm
The world famous Wall Street will be on most people's visit list when in New York. To be honest not a lot to see apart from the bull and stock exchange but the narrow street is a good photo opportunity.
Wall Street had less character than most other streets in the city. Lots of building and construction work around and nothing much to see. Not a tourist attraction. The bull is on Broadway.
Loved seeing the bull!, hope we see more of him in the actual market. Sad that tours are not available inside. I previously worked for a broker and talked with the traders on the floor so sad I could not see the inside.
I don't think it was the scenery itself as much as the enigma of Wall Street that was at issue here. There were moments when I felt, 'Ah well, it's just a heavily guarded street'. But even so it was an awesome feeling overall ... and hurrah to the anatomically complete anonymous brass bull :D
