    I think technically Federal Hall is at Wall and Broad, but Broad turns into Nassau further north.  

    It's tight quarters in this area.  The Federal Hall isn't very big and of course there has been high security in that whole area near the Stock Exchange NYSE since 9/11 and even more since OWS started.  

    I took this picture standing on Wall Street, heading down from Broadway, going east.  On the left you can see the dark statue. That's the statue of Washington right in front of Federal Hall.  On the right, the big door that you see is on the old Morgan building which is right across the street from the front of the NYSE building (with the columns and big flag, etc.).  If you made a right turn before the Morgan building you would be in front of the NYSE.  So you can see how cramped it is there and when I was there they didn't let anyone walk in the streets, only on the barricaded sidewalks.  No vehicular traffic allowed on select streets anymore.

    This is the Federal Hall, looking at it from the steps of the Morgan building. This is not a big building. It's not tiny, but it is dwarfed by everything around it.  
    This is a pretty gutsy move by the protesters.

    These two pictures are from the statue of George Washington which is in the middle of the Federal Hall steps at the sidewalk level.
