How many of you know how did a city of New York get a name? In 1664 The Duke of York had got the city of "New Amsterdam" as a birthday gift from his father which had renamed it as "New York". Two years earlier, in 1626, American Indians had sold the island of Manhattan for the value of today's $1000. Manhattan translated from old tribal language stands for "island of many hills". New York City was even the capital of the country in 1789 for one year.
As mentioned previously, New York City is considered as financial capital of the country. The Wall Street is a heart of country's finanicial industry and is located at Lower Manhattan.

By the sound of the bell it opens its' doors for trading every day at 9:30am and closes at 4:00pm with the bell ringing always by some famous or important person.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Wall Street has its' property 80 feet underneath the bank and keeps 25% of the World's gold bars. Is interesting to mention that 1 out of 21 New Yorkers is a millionaire!!!
