Wall Street is a metonym for the financial quarters of New York City, even though financial firms are not physically present there. It is 1.1 km in length that runs from Broadway to South Street on the East River in Lower Manhattan, signifying New York-based financial interests. It features various landmarks such as the iconic Charging Bull of the sculptor Arturo Di Modica, which is an artist’s representation of the Bull Market Economy. Other buildings bordering this street include Federal Hall, 40 Wall Street (the Trump building), The Federal Reserve, Trinity Church and the New York Stock Exchange, which is the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies.

Before the occurrence of the Occupy Wall Street protests, Wall Street was synonymous with prosperity, for it houses some of the biggest names in the world of finance and financial markets in the United States. Starting from the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, New York Mercantile Exchange and the New York Board of Trade, all call Wall Street their home.

Famous landmarks include Arturo Di Modica’s iconic Charging Bull, which is representative of a Bull Market Economy, Federal Hall, the Trump building, the Federal Reserve, Trinity Church and of course the New York Stock Exchange.
