Things to Know Before You Go

How to Get There
The New York Stock Exchange is located in the Financial District at 11 Wall Street. One convenient way to arrive is by citywide sightseeing tour—most tours visit the exchange, along with New York's top sights, so you see more in less time. Alternatively, take the subway. Ride the 2, 3, 4, or 5 to Wall Street, or take the N, R, or W to Rector Street.
When to Get There
Visit the New York Stock Exchange building by day to explore the Wall Street area and other downtown sights during normal business hours. Stopping by at night offers a picturesque view, as the building is lit and the streets are quiet. Consider a visit in spring, summer, or autumn—New York's most temperate seasons—and if you arrive in winter, bundle up to protect against wind and cold.

Tours are offered daily, but you must reserve a spot in advance. Find the Fed building at 44 Maiden Lane, a short walk from the Exchange.
