About Wall Street
A 1.1km stretch in Lower Manhattan that has become synonymous with America’s financial interests, Wall Street is home to the New York Stock Exchange as well as a number of other trading institutions like NASAQ and the New York Mercantile Exchange. The street was named for a protective wall that shielded the New Amsterdam settlement, and is now a major tourist attraction.
