History of the New York Stock Exchange.
Established by 24 stockbrokers in 1792, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) started small, but gradually increased its volume of traded stocks, tripling their list in just three years, and eventually becoming the financial powerhouse it is today. After many temporary homes, the NYSE found a permanent residence in a stunning neoclassic building designed for the exchange in 1903 by George B. Post. Visitors to New York's financial district can visit the building and enjoy a walk around the stunning and recognizable façade. The New York Stock Exchange does not offer public tours.
Constructed in 1903, the New York Stock Exchange is one of the most recognized landmarks in New York City. The NYSE building was designed by prominent architect George B. Post and features stunning Corinthian pillars, a marble pediment with high-relief sculptures, a huge skylight and wall of windows, extensive trading floors, a number of offices, electronic trading centers, and more. The NYSE building is designated a National Historic Landmark and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
New York Stock Exchange Floor Bell.
One of the most recognized features of the NYSE is its distinctive trading floor bell. The bell rings to mark the opening and closing of business every day. The historic bells are considered a tradition at the NYSE and have been in use for most of its history. Today, the trading floor bells are a cherished part of the NYSE's tradition.
