Wall Street: Finance & History  
Join Annaline Dinkelmann, Owner and Founder of Wall Street Walks and Justin Ferate, with a background in architectural and social history, on this tour of Wall Street from two different perspectives.

From the era of the Colonial Dutch to the present day, American Finance has resonated throughout the canyons of Wall Street. Grasp the origins of Wall Street – from the international prowess of the New York’s waterfront, to the founding of the NY Stock Exchange under a buttonwood tree, to the world of today with high-speed international communications. We’ll focus on the workings of “The Street” as well as the historical political implications of this thoroughfare that once defined the northern boundary of Nieuw Amsterdam.

In addition, we’ll discuss the religious implications of Wall Street, with its two grand churches, Trinity Church and its smaller chapel, St. Paul’s – arguably our national church – where President George Washington went to pray after his inauguration.

Learn about financial icons J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and John D. Rockefeller and how they made history. Discover the importance of the Dow Jones Index so you can understand what financial shows are talking about when they give their closing bell reports.

A few of the many sites include the New York Stock Exchange, J. P. Morgan Guaranty Trust, Fraunces Tavern, the American Stock Exchange, and the Federal Reserve Bank.
