Here’s a little Wall Street trivia to start your work week: Did you know that Wall Street (or as the Dutch called it: de Waal Straat) was once positioned behind a 12-foot high stockade running along the northern most border in lower Manhattan? This 17th century wall was made of 16 foot logs sharpened at one end with the opposing end sunk four feet into the ground. The area was previously home to the Lenape tribe whose ancestors had been living in “Manahatta” for thousands of years. The stockade was constructed to protect the Dutch settlers from British invasion and Native American attacks. The English did eventually attack, and the wall was torn down in 1699. The street where the wall once stood became known as “Wall Street” currently synonymous for the New York Stock Exchange, and globally recognized as the financial center of the world.
