In the mid-1600s in New York City in what is now known as Lower Manhattan, citizens built a strong wall as a defense against marauding Indians and British armies. The wall was taken down by the British in 1699, but the path that it followed is now called "Wall Street." It became a financial center in the late 1800s when speculators would gather there under a large tree to discuss finances and do some light trading.
