"Just for big buildings for working..."

Yes,street is not for living.However,it looks very nice...Good place for banks...I would like there is a lot of trees..

"Lively M-F, a desert on Sa and Su"

Wall street is an interesting street but only during the week when the Stock Market and its busy firms are open. From Monday to Friday you can have a glimpse into how the world economic leaders look like, and admire its magnificent buildings, among them the Trump Building and the New York Stock Exchange. During the weekend Wall Street turns into a desert, where only few tourists stop by for a picture. It is one of the few places in New York that is not open 24/7.

"Still missing something after 2001"

New York Stock Exchange stands as a reminder of what Wall Street was before 2001. While some businesses have up and moved from the area Wall Street is still a place rich in history worth a visit for those looking for some financial atmosphere. Business suits and stock brokers are still the main demographic in the area and that likely will never change but higher security has pulled some of the lively atmosphere from the area leaving it only a ghost of what it once was.

"A true rush."

The Wall Street of today may not be what it was prior to September 11th but it is still a worthy place to visit. Seen as the financial center of the world, Wall Street is still a face paced and quick moving area. If you happen upon the street during rush hours it's best to keep it moving. The sheer number of business suits running around is a sight worth seeing.The NYSE is such an amazing building it makes you want to jump right in and become a trader. The Charging Bull statue, now located in Bowling Green Park, is perhaps one of my favorite statues in the city. The massive bronze sculptor is both menacing and beautiful and a worthy photo opportunity for any tourist.

"A little depressing"

Barricades abound this area ever since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11 and since then, much of the life that existed before those events have migrated. Currently, wall st is far from being the financial district it once was... it is more residential if anything but a new budding one if anything... food delivery and grocers are not as abundant as other areas of new york but thank God there is fresh direct!

"Making Money Move"

Wall Street is the home of the New York Stock Exchange and of the men in business suits. To the ladies: this is a wonderful place to sit and cruise eligible bachelors working in the NYSE, and also to have a hot dog on the famous stairs. This block’s beautiful architecture is truly breathtaking, as the heart of the financial district is as visually lucrative as are the business which call the street home. This street is a quintessential stop on a New York City tour, and an interesting stop on an American History Tour. Who knows: you might catch a glimpse of a heavy hitter or two!

"My favorite place to be in NYC"

Wall street is by far my favorite place in New York City. Business has always fascinated me, so naturally what is seen as the business street of the world. The area has an upbeat pace, lots of quick places to get a quick bite or a quick coffee. Nothing really stands out, except the obvious excess of wealth, but it's a good experience to simply say you've walked down Wall Street.

"Business Attire Recommended, Not Required"

Not really, but if you get your kicks seeing people in business attire, this is where you wanna be! Take a tour at the NYSE, or just throw your money away there. There's mediocre museums in the area. And quick food for people on a businessy schedule. For some financial inspiration, check out the bull statue. But where's the corresponding bear one?

"The heart of the Financial District."

There is an underlying energy one experiences whether you are working or visiting Wall St. Almost as if you belong there and always have and will belong there.
It is no wonder why this street was picked to be home to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), and the New York Board of Trade (NYBOT).
The surrounding area has come to be known as Wall St.
