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!

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour from start to finish. All staff were lovely. We arrived a half hour early, as advised, and this allowed us to walk around and explore the area (level 1 I believe) where the tour begins. There were a number of...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

Unfortunately not. Tickets are limited to a small amount each day and need to be booked online a month before hand. Security is tight as you can imagine, and you have to provide details regarding each member of your party... More

I didn't find any accommodation for this. Best advice is to be online at 9:00 sharp and, maybe, have two people working fast on two different computers.

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