Financial District History
The area was originally an Indigenous Lenape market. Dutch colonizers came, brought human enslavement and built New Amsterdam (1626 -1664).
The English renamed it New York in 1664. In 1685, Africans were forced to build a town wall. The wall became a market for human beings. In 1711 New York’s first official human market was set up at the corner of Wall and Pearl Streets.
Buttonwood Agreement of 1792 between an association of traders later became the New York Stock Exchange. All this grew into what we now know as the world’s leading financial services hub: Wall Street.
