Established back in 1792, the New York Stock Exchange has been the premier means for investors and stock issuers to come together. The building that we now know of as the NYSE opened in 1903 and has been the home of frenzied stock trading activity through two World Wars, a stock market crash and numerous recessions.
With 2,672 of the world best companies listed, the NYSE is part of the world's financial backbone and you can feel the power of it when you enter its walls.
18 Broad Street
Due to security concerns, tours of the NYSE have been canceled indefinitely, however the Wall Street area is still a great place to visit.
Preferably take the 4, 5 or 6 train to the Wall Street Station. You can also take the J, M, 2 or 3 to Wall Street.
