Wall Street

It is the main street of the financial district in Manhattan, today Wall Street continues to represent wealth, prosperity and for some, greed. Wall Street is the name of the narrow street in New York's lower Manhattan, between Broadway and the East River.

Considered the historical heart of the Financial District, is the principal and permanent home of the Stock Exchange in New York, the architecture of Wall Street is generally based on the Golden Age; there are also some influences of decorative art in the neighborhood.

The most important buildings in the area are: New York Stock Exchange built in the early twentieth century but with a classic aspect, and The Federal Hall, built in the late eighteenth century with the Gothic style. Going through the streets during weekdays you can see a maelstrom of suits, heels, ties and a lot of coffee, IPad and mobile phones, its home of the top executives of international finance.

In non-working days, however, the Financial District becomes even boring. Inspired by the stock market crash in 1987, the sculptor Arturo Di Modica created the Statue of  the bull with 7,000 pounds (3175kg) as a sign of optimism.
