New York, United States

Wall Street & NY => Maine

August 10 – 12, 2019 

I only had a few hours until my flight, but I wanted to explore one more thing. I was already in downtown Manhattan, so I decided to check out Wall Street, NYC’s financial distract. I simply walked around and took a few photos before my couple hour subway ride back to JFK Airport.

Federal Hall National Memorial. Statue in front is George Washington. This building, located at 26 Wall Street, served as the first meeting place of the Congress of Confederation and was where the Stamp Act Congress met to draft their message against “taxation without representation.” It was also the the first meeting place of Congress as it is now and was where George Washington was sworn in as president. It also served as New York’s first City Hall.

New York Stock Exchange, located at 11 Wall Street. The world’s largest stock market.

40 Wall Street. Owned by Donald Trump as of the early 2000s.

Next, it was time to make the trek back to the JFK Airport.

After that adventure, I got checked into the airport quite a bit early (perhaps 8:00 PM?) and hung around for a bit, got dinner, called a friend. And then, it was time for the flight back to Maine! It was a bit delayed with take-off, but the flight only ended up being around 45 minutes, so I was back to Maine right around midnight. Until next time, New York!
