Wall Street, the pinnacle of world’s stock exchange, is located in New York’s Financial district. The name originates from the times when there was an actual wall on the street. This wall was supposed to protect against attacks from the Indians and the English who tried to conquer the area. Today it is the place to visit if you are at all interested in stocks or the economic system of The USA. It was certainly a jaw dropping experience to see the magnificent buildings and all the businessmen in their expensive suits.
