Photo by myself at the New York Stock Exchange, at Wall and New Streets.
When I was here around twilight, a guard stood outside this institution. The building is probably patrolled all day and night, though I'm sure there's nothing of immense value inside.

By the way, it's Fashion Week in New York. Designers are showing their Spring 2010 Spring Collections.
Enormous white tents have been strung up in Bryant Park for the occasion. Not all shows take place in the park; some are staged in hotels and auditoriums around town.
Unfortunately most New Yorkers don't see the shows at all, which are open to a select few. We have to flip through magazines like everyone else.
