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.More
