Charging Down Wall Street
On Wall Street, you’ll find plenty of bull – and we’re not just talking about stock tips. We’re talking about seven thousand pounds of bronze sculpted into an icon to represent the American spirit of financial prosperity and optimism.
That’s a lot of bull. You can see this one-of-a-kind statue, as well as one of the biggest and most historic financial markets on the planet, with Wall Street Walks. The start of the tour is at 55 Wall Street, not even half a mile from where Seastreak ferries drop you off at Pier 11.
Running of the Financial Bulls
Wall Street Walks take you on a 90-minute tour of the Wall Street area, guided by Wall Street insiders who know the real deal. You’ll have a chance to check out the Art Deco architecture the buildings are known for, and whiff the scent of money in the air around the New York Stock Exchange. The tour takes you to restaurants where some of the most influential power players fill up before going back to play monetary hard ball.
Even better, you’ll learn about the fascinating history of Wall Street. Only in America could a group of businessmen meeting under a buttonwood tree turn into the most-watched financial market on the planet. Find out how greats such as John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie got their starts. You’ll hear more about how IPOs work, and what the Dow Jones Index really means.
Bully For You
No tour of Wall Street would be complete without a stop at the Wall Street Bull. Snap a picture with this symbolic work of art to remember your tour by. You can even follow him on Twitter!
Seastreak ferries have enough amenities to make even Wall Street power players feel at home. We’ll give you the most comfortable ride to Manhattan and home again – and that’s no bull.
Sea you soon!
