Over hyped, excessive security (need to take passport to enter), stroppy boring "couldn't be bothered" guide. However, it was interesting and the building is beautiful.

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

I didn't find any accommodation for this. Best advice is to be online at 9:00 sharp and, maybe, have two people working fast on two different computers.

You can have it in your pocket or bag, just don't take it out whilst in the building.
