Bowling Green and Canyon of Heros at night

New York City. Just north of Bowling Green Park Broadway merges with Whitehall Street and is called Canyon of Heros because New York’s ticker tape parades originate here.

Some of the buildings that form the "canyon walls" along the Canyon of Heros in the Financial District.

Descending into the station I noticed that the railing has spikes on it (painted over), no doubt to stop people from sitting down. You know those investment bankers, always trying to stick their butts where they don’t belong.

Notice the Trinity Church lit up in the background at the bottom of Wall Street.

Even at night when people who work here have gone home this place has an air of excitement about it; most days much of the world’s money passes through here in one form or another.
