START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – HELLO WALL STREET

You  and  your  cousins  are visiting  the  next  destination  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New York  City ,  Wall Street .

The  street  is  not  as big as  the  three  of  you  imagine it would  be ,  but this  street  rules everything   when  it comes  to  money  in not only  the  United  States ,  but  the  world .

Sadly ,  at one  time ,  this  street  is where slaves  were auctioned  and sold  until   1762

It  was  called    Wall Street  because  at one time ,  the Dutch put up a wall to    protect   New Amsterdam ,  as New York  was once  called ,  from the  Indians and  the  British .

It’s  also  the  area  where  George  Washington  was sworn in  as the first  president  .

Sure, enough ,  right  across  the  street  from  the  New York  Stock  Exchange  is Federal  Hall, and whose statue  is  right  in front ?

George  Washington  himself .

He was  sworn  in  at Federal  Hall.

Just like  the  front  desk  clerks  told you  there were a lot of  New York  City  policemen  around ,  but no cars were allowed  down  this  street  .

One World  Trade  Center  is close  by but the  three of  you are  going  to  go back  to  your  hotel  and decide  what  your  next destination  is going  to  be  on your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New York  City .
