This is not the most essential place to visit in Manhattan but if you are in the Wall Street area, do go inside after you've looked at the handsome Greek Revival exterior. The inside has variously-shaped rooms, including a central rotunda, done in late neo-classical...More

I've been to the front steps here before, but it was closed inside. This time it was open, so I got to go inside and check it out. Very cool! Amazing how much history has happened there. You can feel it around you.

This is an old historical building, where George Washington was inaugurated as the first President and also the Bill of Rights was introduced. Lots of information on George Washington. A building worth visiting especially if you are interested in the historical events of the US.

Many people walk by without knowing the historical significance of this building. George Washington took the oath of office here and kicked off a tradition that carries on to this day.
