Wall Street is a street in Lower Manhattan, New York City. It runs east from Broadway to South Street on the East River, through the historical center of the Financial District. It is the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange, the world's largest stock exchange by market capitalization of its listed companies.[1] Over time, Wall Street became the name of the surrounding geographic neighborhood[2] and also shorthand (or a metonym) for the "influential financial interests" of the American financial industry, which is centered in the New York City area.[3] Anchored by Wall Street, New York City is one of the principal financial centres of the world.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10]

Several major U.S. stock and other exchanges remain headquartered on Wall Street and in the Financial District, including the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, NYMEX, NYBOT.
