My first impression of NYC? Very vibrant and energetic! For those of you who have never been, Wall Street might surprise you as it is only a narrow street in Lower Manhattan despite the fact that it is the heart of New York City’s financial district and home to the New York Stock Exchange. Corporate lawyers and bankers are the majority of Wall Street’s workforce.
The famous Charging Bull, also known as the Wall Street Bull – picture showing its butt 😛
I’ve been told these subways are quite smelly!

After visiting Wall Street, I boarded the river cruise which sailed along the Hudson River. The open air upper deck allows you to view NYC’s skyline and skyscrapers, as well as landmarks such as NYC’s Statue of Liberty. The indoor lower deck offers air-conditioning, and the performance of a musician.
