The name Wall Street evolved from the earliest history of North America. Back then, a wall stood as a protective boundary between the wealth of the Dutch Settlement of New Amsterdam and the Native Americans. It's a difficult challenge to find traces of that original wall from a time 400 years ago, especially in such a modern city as New York. But the wall of Wall Street perfectly parallels the history of New York City from its earliest beginnings as the world's financial capital. NOTE: Contains ancient nude sculptures.
