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 .
