Behind the noble buildings and long-established firms are the men and women who constitute the financial world. These are the souls who have resolved to maintain the greatest financial center in the world.

New Yorks financial district is one of the citys oldest and most elegant architectural neighborhoods, as well as home to some of the richest and most powerful organizations in the world. With over 300 full-color photographs, accompanied by text and captions, Wall Street: Financial Capital is the most comprehensive portrait ever published of this famous district. Robert Gambees stunning photographs take us on a complete tour of the citys centers of finance, including the Wall Street Financial Center, TriBeCa, and midtown Manhattan, revealing Wall Street past and present.

Included are the stories of every major bank, brokerage house, law firm, and securities exchange, interspersed with anecdotes about Wall Streets buildings, byways, seaport, and residences. Gambees captions are a mine of fascinating history: here was John D. Rockefellers old Standard Oil company office, there the Old Lawyers Club- and here is Pearl Street, once the outer limit of the city, whose name is derived from the oyster shells with which it once was paved. Anyone with an interest in finance, architecture, or the history of New York will enjoy this magnificent book.
