I’ve been to New York City so many times, but somehow never really got around to taking shots of the famous Wall Street. Back in my 6th grade year in the US I remember coming out of the metro on Wall Street and for the first time in my life seeing the endless row of gigantic buildings, made me feel small and claustrophobic. But much has changed since then, I’ve visited many hectic cities, have lived in possibly the most hectic skyscraper-mania city of all – Hong Kong – and so the revisit to Wall Street did not have the same kind of effect on me. If anything, I was a bit surprised how well-organized and quiet everything was. The new post-911 area and building also added to the effect. Compared to Hong Kong’s Central and especially Tsim Sha-Tsui, there wasn’t even much show of wealth and money.
What I do have to share with you are very general impressions of the area.
The Wall Street and the “Bull” are considered one of NYC’s prime attractions, but to me there are far more exciting things to do. Combine this with a visit to China Town and the Staten Island Ferry round-trip ride.
