Wall Street

Wall Street is a street in Manhattan, New York that forms the center of its financial district. The NYSE, NASDAQ, and American Stock Exchange to name a few are headquartered here. Additionally, several investment companies maintain their primary offices on or near Wall Street. Because of its influence on the wider financial world, Wall Street is often used as a byword for the financial industry in the United States and its lobbyists. In this sense, Wall Street is important to political discourse in the United States.

The sheer amount of money traded on Wall Street render it vitally important to the global economy as well. No one can just enter freely in any of the financial offices I just mentioned awhile ago in this post. But somewhere in the area, you can have your photos taken with the symbol of Wall Street itself, a not so golden carabao statue. There is no other statue in the vicinity, so get your cameras ready once you it because you will not be the only ones who are eager to take photos of it ;).
