We woke up at 7 and were all down stairs by 8 o’clock for our breakfast with a choice of cereal, bagels and muffins. Everyone was very excited for our first exploration of New York. Firstly, we got the subway to Wall Street where we met our tour guide, Miss Tommy (or Tommy for the over 18’s).
She gave us a very interesting four hour walking tour of the Financial District and a sight of the New York Stock Exchange. This gave us a good insight to the business world in New York, and also the way the Stock Exchange is run. We went via the Museum of American Finance where we saw a magnificent monopoly board made out of 18 carat gold.
