The New York Stock Exchange is an icon of commerce and capitalism. Synonymous with Wall Street, it’s the world’s largest stock exchange.
It’s been closed to visitors since 9/11, but the impressive building’s Roman temple design makes an impressive photo stop, complete with soaring columns, carved pediment, lofty proportions, and fluttering US flags.
Although it was rainy and cold our tour guide Tom was excellent in providing details and answering our questions.

Doing what: New York City and Wall Street Financial Crisis Tour
Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the crisis and the buildings and companies who occupied them. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and found it very insightful.
Our guide Tom was brilliant. His sense of humour and extensive knowledge made the tour really informative and entertaining. Great tour!
The New York Stock Exchange is in Lower Manhattan on Wall Street, between Broad and New Streets. The closest subway stations are at Wall Street, Broad Street and Rector Street.
