Within NYC, Lower Manhattan is the ideal location for a museum of economics, since it is home of the historic core and financial district. This location would allow a new Museum to serve multiple markets. This market includes tourists, schools, local residents, and the people who work in the downtown area.
Many downtown visitors seek out an entertaining and educational exposure to the “Wall Street experience” at the New York Stock Exchange. A Finance and Economic Museum would be a natural attraction to draw large numbers of visitors to Lower Manhattan.
