If you are looking for something different to do on your trip to NY, check out the Federal Bank. Each day they do small group trips down to the gold vaults, 80ft beneath the street level. An informative and selective visit, well worth an hour...More

If you love history and bank notes and currency then this tour is for you! The tour includes a visit to the vault all the way down into the Manhattan bedrock. Fantastic and educational!

This is a very hard tour to get on, it requires you to be online exactly 30 days before you want to visit at exactly 9:00 AM and catch some of the 25 tickets available. I found that they are all gone within 5 or...More

Yes, if you take the gold tour, they really will let you see a stack of gold bars. Actually, they will take you down into the actual vault so you can see the gold as it exists in its enclosed habitat, as it were. You...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

I've seen a few posts say that cameras aren't allowed - do you have to leave your cell phone at your hotel or do they simply not allow you to take them out of your pocket while you're on site? Thanks.

You can have it in your pocket or bag, just don't take it out whilst in the building.
