The names of two its streets encapsulate the degree of the city\'s preeminence: Wall Street and Broadway.

It captures and illuminates the swings of prosperity and downturn, from the 1898 skyscraper-driven boom, to the Bankers\' Panic of 1907, to the labor upheavals and repressions during and after the World War One.
