Wall Street - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2884 words)
Wall Street is the name of a narrow thoroughfare in lower Manhattan running east from Broadway downhill to the East River.
The name of the street derives from the fact that during the 17th century, it formed the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement where the Dutch had constructed a crude wall of timber and earthwork in 1652.
This is, to say the least, a decades-old stereotype stemming from the natural tendency of Wall Street's establishment to protect their interests and, more abstractly, the obvious connection Wall Street has had (and, some argue, still has) with a powerful WASP establishment.
