Wall Street

Records show that in the years after the Revolutionary War, traders and speculators would gather under a particular buttonwood tree that sat at the foot of Wall Street. They soon formed The Buttonwood Association (1792), which is believed to be the roots of the New York Stock Exchange, whose headquarters has been located on Wall Street for centuries. Today, one of the Financial District’s most famous symbols is the ‘Charging Bull’ Statue (The bull represents a bull market, a constantly rising market).
