Stock Market Trip Pictures

January 27, 2000

As the culminating activity to our study of Economics and the Stock Market, we took a field trip to New York City. We took the Long Island Railroad to Penn Station and the subway to Wall Street. We went to the New York Stock Exchange (we saw the opening bell and the IPO of John Hancock), Federal Hall, the Museum of Financial History, the World Financial Center, and the New York Mercantile Exchange. With wind chills bringing the temperature to below zero, we had a cold, but VERY exciting day! We used our digital camera to record our experiences when we were allowed, although picture taking was prohibited at the New York Stock Exchange and the New York Mercantile Exchange.
