12 Awesome Things to do in Wall Street (Manhattan, New York City)!

Wall Street is a global financial hub located in New York City. There are many things to do here, and this area definitely has more than just finance to offer. We visited this fabled district recently, and it was a surreal experience. I mean, this is the place where billions of dollars of transactions are done everyday; it is also the place where Wall Street power brokers can make or break our global financial system.

We also enjoyed admiring Wall Street’s architecture very much, which mostly stems from the opulent Gilded Age. Therefore, we came across many stately neoclassical architectural buildings as well as various beautiful Neo-Gothic structures. Wall Street has deep historical significance as well. We saw many monuments and memorials commemorating the country’s historical events and figures. This area has been witness to many of the nation’s triumphs: the swearing in of the first US president, the establishment of a powerful stock exchange, etc. But sadly, it has also been the victim of some tragic events. Last but not least, we also found a good shopping spot in Wall Street. Raevian had a good time browsing the myriad of designer-brand goods here.

Therefore, Wall Street is definitely more than just a financial hub! Continue reading
