Petit Futé's opinion on WALL STREET

Vintage plate 2020

Wall Street, this nominal group, which has been heard a thousand times over, designating by abuse of language the neighborhood around the New York Stock Exchange and by ricocheting the superpowerful American financial community in its most hectic and wildest form (there are countless publications and films on the subject), is simply the name of a street located in southern Manhattan, starting from east of Broadway and running east to the East River. A northern border line of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam in the 17th century, its name comes from the first owner of the area, a Walloon who arrived before the Dutch and to whom it sold its land, hence the name "Rue des Wallons", which is still used today: Wall Street. The area around this street is marked by the stigmas of New York history, and the buildings surrounding it - listed as Historic Monuments of the city, the oldest being the National City Bank Building and Federal Hall - are absolutely worth a visit. The wise comments of a guide are highly instructive here.

If Wall Street is now the term used to describe the New York Stock Exchange, it is because on May 17, 1792, twenty-four traders gathered at the site of the current 68 Wall Street to sign the Buttonwood Agreement, which marked the creation of the New York Stock Exchange. The agreement was signed under a plane tree ("buttonwood" in English), hence its name.
