Out of all of New York I was pretty underwhelmed and disappointed by Wall Street. This place is supposed to be the financial capital of the world? I went midweek during work hours, you'd think the place would be all hustle and bustle.

Nope, seemingly not much going on at all actually. There was basically nothing to see there other than the NYSE, which is heavily guarded, fenced off and isn't even very photogenic. The best photo you will get is probably of a Wall St. sign and that's it!

There were basically no workers around, which I found odd. I'd expected Wall St. to be full of suited and booted finance people running around but there was hardly a soul. Where is everybody? Other than the NYSE there also didn't seem to be many other investment/finance companies on Wall St. itself. Maybe they're somewhere else?

I walked up Wall St., took a few photos and continued on all within about 10 minutes.

The bull statue is about the best thing to see on Wall Street. Don't plan on running up and ringing the bell to open the market (haha). Anyway, great access to Wall Street from the city subway system. You can see everything there is to see on Wall Street in about 15 minutes.

Of course when you go to New York City, you must go see the beautiful, famous, bronze statue of the Charging Bull on Wall Street. He is large, looks unpredictable, full of motion,energy and strength. Which reminds all of us how volatile the stock market can be.

Now, when you go to see the Wall Street Bull you can also see the Fearless Girl standing in front of it, staring him down. Fun for tourists, art lovers and photographers. Enjoy.

Two very significant statues right next to each other.

Nothing much to see on Wall Street. There's Federal Hall and the stock exchange and a few random buildings but not a visual financial powerhouse that we are led to believe. Disappointing.

It is said that the name of this street comes from a wooden fence on the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement, built to protect first colonists (Dutch) against Native Americans, pirates, and the British. Now it is a a figure of speech for the financial markets of the United States as a whole (since a lot of most economically powerful financial companies in the world have its offices at or near the Wall Street).
