      Federal Hall

This is where about a billion of shares are traded each day. The building is in a neoclassical style with Corinthian columns. Due to security issues the general public are not allowed on the trading floor however you can get an idea of what its like from many films. I was in NYC during a particular bad time for America's economy so needless to say not too many happy faces in Wall street.

Federal Hall is just opposite with a statue of Washington outside as he was inaugurated there. The building is now a museum dedicated to postcolonial New York.
