Financial District
In front of Trinity Church, intersection of Wall Street & Broadway

From the Dutch colonists trading with the island’s native inhabitants to the robber barons of the 19th century to the world financial center of the present day, Wall Street has a rich history of commerce that we’ll explore in this tour. Starting at Trinity Church and winding through the streets of banking giants and historic figures, stops may include the New York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, J.P. Morgan’s bank, and sites associated with the nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton, John D. Rockefeller and Victoria Woodhull.
