“Wall Street is an eight-block-long street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City.
It runs between Broadway in the west to South Street and the East River in the east.
The term “Wall Street” has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry, New York–based financial interests, or the Financial District itself.
Wall Street was originally known in Dutch as “de Waalstraat” when it was part of New Amsterdam in the 17th century, though the origins of the name vary.
An actual wall existed on the street from 1685 to 1699.
During the 17th century, Wall Street was a slave trading marketplace and a securities trading site, as well as the location of Federal Hall, New York’s first city hall.
In the early 19th century, both residences and businesses occupied the area, but increasingly business predominated, and New York City’s financial industry became centered on Wall Street.
In the 20th century, several early skyscrapers were built on Wall Street…..” — WIKIPEDIA
