But we shouldn't forget the ambivalence that surrounded the buildings, she argues—or the controversial way in which they were brought into being. The World Trade Center and Battery Park were built in the nineteen-sixties over a patchwork of landfill, industrial docks and the ruins of Radio Row, a working class network of mom-and-pop businesses. The project went forward with the help of public funds and the dubious application of eminent domain to become a planned community catering to high financ...

Drexel Burnham Lambert was a major Wall Street investment banking firm, which first rose to prominence and then was forced into bankruptcy in February 1990 by its involvement in illegal activities in the junk bond market, driven by Michael Milken. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/067179227X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=067179227X&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=317ad25e59e385c5d52f73951a50a037 At its height, it was the fifth-largest investment bank in the United States. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drexel_Burnham_Lambert Ivan Frederick Boesky (born March 6, 1937) is an American stock trader who is notable for his prominent role in a Wall Street insider trading scandal that occurred in the United States in the mid-1980s. The character of Gordon Gekko in the 1987 movie Wall Street is based at least in part on Boesky, especially regarding a famous speech he delivered on the positive aspects of greed at the University of California, Berkeley School of Business commencement ceremony in May 1986, where he said in part "I think greed is healthy. You can be greedy and still feel good about yourself". In a 1993 episode of Animaniacs entitled "Plane Pals", Yakko, Wakko, and Dot harass a tightly-wound Wall Street accountant named Ivan Blowsky, when he is forced to sit next to them on an airplane. The character Charlotte, a high-stakes CEO, on Rugrats has two fish in her office named "Boesky" and "Vesco". Boesky is mentioned in the episode Last Days of the television series Sliders: after an asteroid fails to destroy the Earth of the dimension they are in, Rembrandt Brown sees an article in a newspaper stating that Boesky had bought half of the houses in Beverly Hills for $10,000 dollars apiece, and that the erstwhile owners want their houses back. In the 2001 film Ocean's Eleven, Brad Pitt's character, Rusty Ryan, mentions a type of confidence scam termed "a Boesky" that involves a wealthy bankroller with insider information. In The Shield, Vic Mackey states that there will be a "money laundering operation which would make Ivan Boesky flinch". In Season 2, Episode 3 of "Psych" ("Psy vs. Psy"), the Federal Treasury agent claims to have arrested Ivan Boesky himself. In the novel American Psycho, Craig McDermott wins a halloween costume party dressed as Ivan Boesky. In the episode of Futurama, Future Stock, an 80s Wall Street character, reminiscent of Gordon Gekko, said of his glory days: "I was having whisky with Boesky and cookies with Milken." Famous hacker Kevin Mitnick recollects his encounters with Boesky in the prison in his book Ghost in the Wires. In the musical The Wedding Singer (based on the Adam Sandler/ Drew Barrymore movie), the character Glen Guglia mentions that "Boesky bought half, and if Ivan's buying, you know it's in the money." Gump & Co., the sequel to novel Forrest Gump by Winston Groom, had the protagonist Forrest Gump being hired by "Ivan Bozosky". Gump also later begins to wonder how he is being able to command such a high salary for only having to sign papers. In Robocop The Series episode 20 Corporate Raiders, the Chairman of OCP mentions he attended the "Ivan Boesky Elementary Business School". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Boesky

The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. is an American multinational finance company that engages in global investment banking, investment management, securities, and other financial services including asset management, mergers and acquisitions advice, prime brokerage, and securities underwriting services. It also sponsors private equity funds, is a market maker, and is a primary dealer in the United States Treasury security market. Goldman Sachs also owns GS Bank USA, a direct bank. Goldman Sachs was founded in 1869 and is headquartered at 200 West Street in Lower Manhattan, New York City, with additional offices in other international financial centers.[3] Due to its involvement in securitization during the subprime mortgage crisis, Goldman Sachs suffered during the 2007-2008 financial crisis,[4][5] and received a $10 billion investment from the United States Department of the Treasury as part of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, a financial bailout created by the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. The investment was made in November 2008 and was repaid in June 2009.[6][7] The list of former employees of Goldman Sachs who moved on to government positions includes former U.S. Secretaries of the Treasury Robert Rubin and Henry Paulson; current United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin; current chief economic advisor Gary Cohn; European Central Bank President Mario Draghi; former Bank of Canada Governor and current Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney and the current Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull. In addition, former Goldman employees have headed the New York Stock Exchange, the World Bank, and major banks such as Citigroup and Merrill Lynch. On November 16, 1981, the firm acquired J. Aron & Company, a commodities trading firm which merged with the Fixed Income division to become known as Fixed Income, Currencies, and Commodities. J. Aron was a player in the coffee and gold markets, and the current CEO of Goldman, Lloyd Blankfein, joined the firm as a result of this merger. In 1985 it underwrote the public offering of the real estate investment trust that owned Rockefeller Center, then the largest REIT offering in history. In accordance with the beginning of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the firm also became involved in facilitating the global privatization movement by advising companies that were spinning off from their parent governments. In 1986, the firm formed Goldman Sachs Asset Management, which manages the majority of its mutual funds and hedge funds today. In the same year, the firm also underwrote the IPO of Microsoft, advised General Electric on its acquisition of RCA and joined the London and Tokyo stock exchanges. 1986 also was the year when Goldman became the first United States bank to rank in the top 10 of mergers and acquisitions in the United Kingdom. During the 1980s the firm became the first bank to distribute its investment research electronically and created the first public offering of original issue deep-discount bond. Robert Rubin and Stephen Friedman assumed the Co-Senior Partnership in 1990 and pledged to focus on globalization of the firm and strengthening the Merger & Acquisition and Trading business lines. During their reign, the firm introduced paperless trading to the New York Stock Exchange and lead-managed the first-ever global debt offering by a U.S. corporation. It also launched the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) and opened a Beijing office in 1994. Also in 1994, Jon Corzine assumed leadership of the firm as CEO, following the departure of Rubin and Friedman.[19] Another momentous event in Goldman's history was the Mexican bailout of 1995. Rubin drew criticism in Congress for using a Treasury Department account under his personal control to distribute $20 billion to bail out Mexican bonds, of which Goldman was a key distributor.[20] On November 22, 1994, the Mexican Bolsa stock market had admitted Goldman Sachs and one other firm to operate on that market.[21] The 1994 economic crisis in Mexico threatened to wipe out the value of Mexico's bonds held by Goldman Sachs. In 1994, Goldman financed Rockefeller Center in a deal that allowed it to take an ownership interest[22] in 1996, and sold Rockefeller Center to Tishman Speyer in 2000.[23] In April 1997, Goldman was lead underwriter of the Yahoo! IPO. In 1998 it was the co-lead manager of the 2 trillion yen NTT DoCoMo IPO.[24] In 1999, Goldman acquired Hull Trading Company, one of the world's premier market-making firms, for $531 million. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldman_Sachs Image By Jdarsie11 (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

(17 Aug 2016) LEAD IN: The re-opening of the World Trade Center mall in New York is set to transform shopping in Manhattan. Shops from Apple to Longines will serve an increasingly diverse group of residents in addition to Wall Street bankers But they'll also be catering to tourists who come to visit the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. STORY-LINE: Overlooked by the white spires of the new World Trade Center, the first 60 of more than 100 stores in the new Westfield shopping mall opened their doors to shoppers on Tuesday (16th August 2016). The 365,000-square-foot centre stretches along a four-block underground network that spans the bases of three office towers. While mostly below street level, light beams in through the windows of the Santiago Calatrava designed winged Oculus that tops the transportation hub of 13 subway trains and river ferries. More than 300,000 commuters use it on a daily basis. On opening day, the mall was packed with people wanting to shop or just excited to see the new centre. "I think it is absolutely amazing. I love the way they've transformed it. I think it brings tourism back over into this area. I love it," says Raven Smith-Parris. "I just think that the rebuilding of the site is great for this community. We've waited a long time for this site to come up to this level," says Jeff Rutzky. "I think it makes you feel safe again. There's attractions, There's malls. There's restaurants - it brings a happy aura back to the World Trade Center," says Raven Smith-Parris. Westfield says 15 million travellers are expected to visit the area from the U.S. and around the world next year to see the memorial and nearby places of interest. More than 60,000 residents live within blocks of the World Trade Center area, about three times the number from right before 9/11. Workers now include a slew of advertising and media employees and well as people working in finance. Experts say the former shopping mall in the World Trade Center was one of the most successful properties in the world, and retailers hope the new mall will be even more successful. For many, the mall symbolises the progress made in rebuilding and revitalising the area since the 9/11 attacks. "You know, it really really means a big impact for the community, for everything around us. I mean it's beautiful, why not have something like this out here and help the community," says Ed Turczyn. "I thought of that today (9/11). As I came here, walking down the street, I see the new World Trade Center and I see the white spires coming out and I'm old enough to remember when the building was almost built (original WTC towers). I'm almost 50, I actually went to the top of the World Trade Center on my 30th birthday, so I'm still nostalgic for what used to be there and to see all this new stuff after all the destruction that happened. I think it is meaningful. Believe me," says Derrick Wilson. The remaining 40 stores in the centre are due to open by the winter holiday season.

Lower Manhattan, also known as Downtown Manhattan, is the southernmost part of Manhattan, the central borough for business, culture, and government in the City of New York. Economy Before the completion of One World Trade Center, Lower Manhattan was the fourth largest business district in the United States, after Midtown Manhattan, the Chicago Loop, and Washington, D.C.; Lower Manhattan is now the third largest central business district in the U.S. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City functions as the financial capital of the world and has been called the world's most economically powerful city. Lower Manhattan is home to the New York Stock Exchange, on Wall Street, and the corporate headquarters of NASDAQ, at 165 Broadway, representing the world's largest and second largest stock exchanges, respectively, when measured both by overall average daily trading volume and by total market capitalization of their listed companies in 2013. Wall Street investment banking fees in 2012 totaled approximately US$40 billion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Manhattan Manhattan Manhattan is the most densely populated borough of New York City, its economic and administrative center, and the city's historical birthplace. The borough is coterminous with New York County, founded on November 1, 1683 as one of the original counties of the U.S. state of New York. The borough consists mostly of Manhattan Island, bounded by the East, Hudson, and Harlem Rivers, and also includes several small adjacent islands and Marble Hill, a small neighborhood on the U.S. mainland. Manhattan is often described as the cultural and financial capital of the world and hosts the United Nations Headquarters. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, and Manhattan is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization: the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Many multinational media conglomerates are based in the borough. It is historically documented to have been purchased by Dutch colonists from Native Americans in 1626, for 60 guilders or about $24 in 1626 and US$1050 today. Manhattan real estate has since become among the most expensive in the world, with the value of Manhattan Island, including real estate, estimated to exceed US$3 trillion in 2013; residential property sale prices in Manhattan typically exceeded US$1,400 per square foot ($15,000/m2) as of 2016. Many districts and landmarks in Manhattan have become well known, as New York City received a record of nearly 60 million tourists in 2015, and Manhattan hosts three of the world's 10 most-visited tourist attractions in 2013: Times Square, Central Park, and Grand Central Terminal. The borough hosts many world-renowned bridges, such as the Brooklyn Bridge; skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world; and parks, such as Central Park. There are many historically significant places in Manhattan: Chinatown incorporates the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere, and the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village is considered the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement.

Driving Downtown Streets - LaSalle Street - Chicago Illinois USA - Episode 57. Starting Point: https://goo.gl/maps/Z77zhxEXHNB2 . LaSalle Street is a major north-south street in Chicago. The portion that runs through the Chicago Loop is considered to be Chicago's financial district. The Loop, along with the rest of downtown Chicago, is the second largest commercial business district in the United States, after New York City's Midtown Manhattan. Its financial district near LaSalle Street is home to the CME Group's Chicago Board of Trade and Chicago Mercantile Exchange. The street was nicknamed "The Canyon" due to the tall, steep buildings that lie on both ends of the relatively narrow street, with the Chicago Board of Trade Building as the abrupt end of the apparent box canyon. In Popular Culture The street, Chicago Board of Trade Building, and 200 North LaSalle were used in the 2005 film Batman Begins and its sequel The Dark Knight, as well as in the 1999 movie Payback. The view facing south down the canyon has been used in the movies The Untouchables, Public Enemies, Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Road to Perdition. The canyon was in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaSalle_Street Chicago Loop The Loop is the central business district of Chicago, Illinois.

English/Nat Two of America's oldest banks are joining forces to create what they hope will be a global powerhouse. Chase Manhattan Corp and J.P. Morgan and Company will be combining their assets and manpower to become J.P. Morgan Chase. J.P. Morgan and Chase C-E-O's were beaming on Wednesday as they announced that they will now be one company. Chase will buy the 150 year old J.P. Morgan & Company and exchange 3.7 shares of stock for each share of Morgan's stock. J.P. Morgan C-E-O, Douglas Warner III and Chase CEO William Harrison met with shareholders today to explain their vision of the future. SOUNDBITE: (English) "These are two enormously proud histories and firms and in three weeks, the wisdom and the opportunity that this presents is broadly shared by Bill and me, by our boards and by our management teams and that's one big accomplishment." SUPERCAPTION: Douglas Warner III, CEO, J.P. Morgan SOUNDBITE:(English) "Our main goal is to create value for our shareholders and our clients and we are very excited we will do that." SUPERCAPTION: William Harrison, CEO, Chase Morgan has traditionally been strong at handling investment banking, while Chase has a strong foothold in the consumer banking and credit card sectors. Both Warner and Harrison say the merger will place them on track for globalisation. SOUNDBITE: (English) "Take J.P. Morgan content and capabilities comparable, compatible content capabilities from Chase, drive it through an expanded customer base. That's what it's about." SUPERCAPTION: Douglas Warner III, CEO, J.P. Morgan With holdings totalling 660 (b) billion dollars (US) Morgan Chase will have almost as much worth as its competitor, Bank of America, which holds assets worth 679 (b) billion dollars (US). But Citibank is still at the top, with holdings totalling nearly 800 (b)billion dollars (US). SOUNDBITE: (English) "Mr. Morgan would turn over in his grave if he saw what was happening in the financial sector. It's the globalisation factor. It's clearly the driving force behind what's going on." SUPERCAPTION: Barry Hyman, Chief Investment Strategist, Weatherly Securities Corporation Globalisation is of utmost importance to both companies. With about 50 percent of their assets sitting outside United States borders, Morgan Chase will be concentrating on how to wield their power in other countries.

Presented by NYC Data Science Academy students who just finished 12 weeks full time program, apply for Sept 2015 and Jan 2016 program to be a Data Scientist. Preparation: Please bring your laptop, we will show some trick and codes to get your on fast track! Event schedule: 6:30-7:00 Visualization of Trading Strategy backtesting 7:00-7:15 Q&A 7:15-7:45 Fastest subway in NYC (Data updates every 10seconds!) 7:45-8:00 Q&A Speaker bio: Luke Lin is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Mathematics at Stony Brook University who is specialized in partial differential equations. As a lifelong learner of mathematics, he is extremely efficient in quantitative analysis and also skilled at communicating abstract concepts. With proficiency in R and Python, Luke is primed to be a major asset to any analytic force. Xavier Capdepon (MSc Urban Engineering & Master in Corporate Finance) Xavier has more than 12 years experience in analytical modeling. In a career ranging from transportation research to insurance securitization trading and esoteric securities banking, Xavier has deep roots in Data Science. From C and VBA, to SQL, R and Python, Xavier believes in knowing the best-in-breed toolkits. An experienced instructor and consultant in the field of finance, Xavier continues to deepen his abiding interest in prediction through taking the ASA/CAS actuarial exams (first two completed) and experimenting with machine learning models using Hadoop and Spark. Previously at Guggenheim Partners, he is currently a Fellow at the NYC Data Science Academy. Agenda/Content: Demonstration of a Shiny App for building strategy from technical indicators and visualizing the return. In this Shiny App, Luke implemented a trading strategy generated by Bollinger Band, visualized the return and eventually modified the strategy by MACD. Bollinger Band is an elementary volatility indicator and the strategy is generated based on the belief that the price bounce back whenever it hits the edge of Bollinger Band. This is an one of the simplest strategies and personally I believe it reflects humans' most naive feeling about the stock prices. The visualization builds up the connection between the market data and our strategy, because we can actually see how market react to it. Once the return can be seen, it is straightforward to understand why a strategy fail in certain period. In our case, we see that strategy fails when the trend price is very strong--which makes sense because when trend is strong the assumption that the price bounce back is no longer valid. Here we need to impose another popular indicator, MACD. MACD reveals momentum of the price change. The backend algorithm basically suspends buying signal from Bollinger Band and encourages selling to stop loss when MACD shows very negative momentum. It does the opposite when MACD indicates positive momentum. This simple modification reduce the risk or improve the return in several different stocks.The importance of his method lies in the fact that concept behind the modification is simple and the math I used is basic yet the improvement is obvious. This suggests to a reasonable extent our trading result can be improved with better tool and understanding. Demonstration of a Shiny App for processing subways traveling time calculations and visualizing the subways movements in real time using a Python script. In his Shiny app, Xavier explored the MTA data by redrawing a map of New York using the paths of both buses and subways, implemented a script to compare and visualize the travel times of the lines 4 Express train and 1 local train from the bronx to lower manhattan and to create a real time map of the 1 train. The idea for the app is based on a comment from his sister in law who mentionned several times that, in her experience, the subways, 1 local trains and 4 express trains, were not running with the same punctuality from the Bronx to Lower Manhattan during the early morning peak. In order to investigate, Xavier used the static and real time data available on the MTA.info website. At first, in an attempt to make sense of the numerous files and data available, he used the data to redraw the map of new york city using the paths used every day by the buses and the subways. The visualization is a map with a particularity: the transparency of the drawing package ggplot2 allows to highlight the streets used by several bus lines around new york city.Then, Xavier wrote a script to gather the data and calculate the travel time for the 1 and 4 trains from the Bronx to lower Manhattan given a depart time along the day. The visualization some trends over the day with two peaks at rush hours and lower difference in travel time between the 1 and 4 trains than expected. Finally, using the work described previously, the Shiny app also presents a real time map of the 1 train using real time data gathered every 10 second from the MTA API using Python script.

New York has been for the most of in its history the largest, most diverse and economically ambitious city in America. Anchored by Wall Street, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the hub of the global financial center. The city is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization, the New York Stock Exchange andNASDAQ. But for more than 2 centuries New York was also a hub for America's slave trade. Enslaved and free Africans were largely responsible for the construction of the early city, first by clearing land, then by building a fort, mills, bridges, houses, and even the first city hall. The very name Wall Street is born of slavery, as they built a wall in 1653 to protect Dutch settlers from Indian raids. Join us on this edition of Inside Out for a tour of Lower Manhattan to explore the often overlooked history of enslaved and free Africans in early New York. We'll make stops at historic sites most tour guides and buses will never show you. Thumbnail image from: fineartamerica.com

"Now that the [9/11] memorial has opened to the public," Alyssa Katz writes in her article in this week's issue of The Nation, Proving Grounds, "the transformation of the zone from a spectacular but also stubbornly mundane place to do business into a shrine to Muslim-battling martyrs is complete." But we shouldn't forget the ambivalence that surrounded the buildings, she argues—or the controversial way in which they were brought into being. The World Trade Center and Battery Park were built in the nineteen-sixties over a patchwork of landfill, industrial docks and the ruins of Radio Row, a working class network of mom-and-pop businesses. The project went forward with the help of public funds and the dubious application of eminent domain to become a planned community catering to high finance. In this video produced by The Nation's Francis Reynolds, Katz,editor of the New York World, an accountability journalism project based at Columbia Journalism School, provides some historical background for the World Trade Center site and the example it set for the evolution of Lower Manhattan and the city as a whole.
