Here is a tour that takes the bull by the horns with an ambitious walk amid the staggering culture of money and the historical treasures of the world's financial epicenter. Witness where Alexander Hamilton sowed the seeds of prosperity as the country's first Treasury Secretary. Stand near the very spot where George Washington was inaugurated President. Learn how the Dutch settled in the area by establishing a trading post they called New Amsterdam…that over time morphed into the home of today's most powerful financial institutions, including the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve Bank where billions are staked each day. From the historical legacies of Battery Park to the teeming streets of America's premier business address, you'll come away with a deep understanding of how immigration, war, money and power all converged here to forge the Wall Street we know today.
