Our tips for Wall Street and New York Stock Exchange


  • The First Congress? Those who failed to pay attention in their U.S. history class might be surprised to learn that the first Congress was held in New York’s Federal Hall. Do try to visit it and at least check out the statue of George Washington being sworn in. 
  • Caveat Emptor. Tourists should beware of touts claiming they can get you through the doors of the New York Stock Exchange. Public tours ceased after 9/11, so unless you know someone, you won’t get in.
  • Don't Overlook Trinity Church. It's easy to get caught up with all the money being made and lost inside the NYSE and forget to visit Trinity Church during your Wall Street trip. But, you’d be missing some of the oldest stained glass in the U.S.

Good to know

Best time to visit

The best time to visit is late spring through early fall.  Summer is the most popular time but it is also the season with massive crowds.  The shoulder seasons of May-June and September-October might just offer the perfect balance of decent weather and easy accessibility. In terms of time of day, lunchtime on Wall Street is interesting.  You can watch stockbrokers and hedge fund managers running out to grab a quick bite before hurriedly running back to work for that next big transaction.  Similarly, you can experience the extreme hustle and bustle of Wall Street just before the stock market’s opening bell and right after the closing bell.


Getting there

Getting to Wall Street is simple!  If you wish to take the subway, then you should hop on the 2/3 or 4/5 lines and alight at the Wall Street station.  Those wishing to take the bus can simply hop on the M55, which basically makes a loop through the heart of Manhattan, stopping at Wall Street twice during each circuit.  Taxis are an option too but traffic can be unbearable at times and fares are steep. Another oft-overlooked option is simply walking. If you are already in Manhattan, you’d probably be surprised to learn how short the walk to Wall Street is.  Everything in New York is packed closely together, so you can walk, see some of the top attractions along the way, and get a better feel for life on the streets.

Money saving tips
Booking your Wall Street tours and well in advance is always a great way to stay within your means when travelling. Also, keep your eyes peeled for great deals, offers and discounts online to save money. How about checking out some combo tours? They’re a great way to see more and spend less.
