Vintage Images of Wall Street


The name comes from an old wall built by Dutch settlers, in 1653, to protect New Amsterdam (later New York) from invasions. Wall Street is narrow and short, but historically charming and busy. It extends from Broadway to the East River, in Manhattan. The asphalt pavement was laid down in 1890.
