Financial District - New York City
Wall Street is the heart of the financial District in Lower Manhattan. Visit Federal Hall National Monument for a bit of early American history. George Washington was inaugurated on these very steps. It's right across the street from the famous New York Stock Exchange. Tours have been suspended since 9/11, but the building is impressive enough from the outside to make it worth seeing. Also in the area you can find the New York Federal Reserve Bank.
Down at the end of Wall Street is historic Trinity Church. Founded in the 1840's, it is a great example of the Gothic Revival architecture. There is a graveyard on the grounds where many wealthy and famous New Yorkers are buried. It narrowly escaped destruction from the World Trade Center collapse.
Near the US Customs House there is a Bronze Statue of Bull that makes for a great photo-if you can manage to safely cross the street.
Financial District: What's Open on Sundays
It's not true that the Financial District closes down on Sunday. There's lots going on.
