9780393047677: Wall Street: Financial Capital

The most complete profile of the world's greatest financial center―celebrating the beauty, strength, and resiliency of an extraordinary community.

On September 11, 2001, the face of Wall Street was tragically scarred, but its spirit remains undaunted. Behind the noble buildings and long-established firms are the men and women who constitute the financial world. These are the souls who have resolved to maintain the greatest financial center in the world. New York's financial district is one of the city's oldest and most elegant architectural neighborhoods, as well as home to some of the richest and most powerful organizations in the world. With over 300 full-color photographs, accompanied by text and captions, Wall Street: Financial Capital is the most comprehensive portrait ever published of this famous district. Robert Gambee's stunning photographs take us on a complete tour of the city's centers of finance, including the Wall Street Financial Center, TriBeCa, and midtown Manhattan, revealing Wall Street past and present. Included are the stories of every major bank, brokerage house, law firm, and securities exchange, interspersed with anecdotes about Wall Street's buildings, byways, seaport, and residences. Gambee's captions are a mine of fascinating history: here was John D. Rockefeller's old Standard Oil company office, there the Old Lawyer's Club; and here is Pearl Street, once the outer limit of the city, whose name is derived from the oyster shells with which it once was paved. Anyone with an interest in finance, architecture, or the history of New York will enjoy this magnificent book. Over 300 color photographs.

Review:

"Brilliant Photography" -- Steve Forbes, The New York Times

"Handsome photos with historical nuggets." -- Institutional Investor

"Many of us who know the Street will feel very poignant as we turn the pages...How splendid, how magnificent the Street is without the people. How rich in history as the widely informative captions corroborate, and may I emphasize that this is as much an engrossing text on Wall Street and its institutions as it is a marvelous pictorial survey. In addition to its great arks and ziggurats, Gambee sems to have missed few of Wall Street's most picturesque chinks, corners and coigns, and the reader is led to each through angles of vision which by most definitions known to me deserve the name of artistry. It is all here: the banking houses, clubs, churches, the spires and rotundas, the corner offices and trading bedlams which make up America's Rome, its Nineveh and Tyre. I recommend this book without reservation." -- Michael Thomas, Washington Post

"Robert Gambee's photographs speak magic." -- The New York Times

We recommend this book without hesitation! -- Washington Post
