This book portrays Wall Street at its best. The magnificent buildings, board rooms and trading floors are a testament to the people and companies, both American and international, who have created this unique financial capital.

“The Cream of the Coffee Table Books!”
— The New York Times

“The most complete portrait of the financial community ever published, with truly first rate photography.”
— Malcolm Forbes, Jr.

“How rich in history, as the widely informative captions corroborate, and may I emphasize that this is as much an engrossing test on Wall Street and its men and institutions as it is a marvelous pictorial survey. In addition to its great arks and ziggurats, Gambee seems to have missed few of Wall Street's more 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. We recommend this book without hesitation!
— The Washington Post
