Best time to visit

The best time to visit Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange is late spring through early fall.  Winter obviously bring freezing temps and plenty of snow.  So, the number of visitors who take a Wall Street tour during the season decreases significantly.  Summer represents the most popular time to take a Wall Street trip, but it is also the season with the highest temps and massive crowds.  But, in late spring through early fall, you can take advantage of mild temps and less tourists.  The shoulder seasons of May-June and September-October might just offer the perfect balance of decent weather and easy accessibility to the top Wall Street attractions. In terms of time of day, lunchtime serves as an interesting spectacle on Wall Street.  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.  If you want to see what it takes to make it on Wall Street, showing up at these times is what to do in New York!


Getting there

Getting to Wall Street is simple!  The megalopolis of New York provides no shortage of mass transit options.  If you wish to take the city’s famous subway, which is a New York attraction in itself, 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 present an enticing option, as well.  If you take a cab, you don’t have to figure out the mass transit systems or fight your way through the subway tunnels.  However, traffic can be unbearable at times and taxi fares are rather expensive.  Another oft-overlooked option is simply walking.  If you’re already in Manhattan, you’d probably be surprised to learn how short the walk to Wall Street is.  Everything is New York is packed closely together, so you can walk, see some of the top New York attractions along the way, and get a better feel for life on the New York City streets.  It’s one of the best things to do in New York if you want to get around like a local!

Money saving tips

Short on cash?  That’s O.K.  You can still explore Wall Street on the cheap.  For example, admission to 40 Wall Street costs nothing and that’s the address of one of the oldest and tallest skyscrapers in N.Y.  And, for better or worse, it’s also the address of Trump Tower.
