    This national memorial has served as New York’s City Hall and the United States Custom House, as well as the site of the first Congress of the United States and George Washington’s presidential inauguration.

    This place is great and it's free. There is some special background involved with Federal Hall, so it is worth checking out if you are even remotely interested in U.S. history. Take some time to read the exhibition material, as this is where the value lies. You don't have to spend a lot of time here; we did it all in about 60-75 mins.

    If the weather outside is cold or too warm, this is a great place to learn about the multiple buildings on this site related to the establishment of our country. And, it is free. Tours are available at scheduled times.

    As it is free to go in it's worth it. There is a free guided tour which is quite interesting and a well set up display. Also, if you've not managed to get bus, subway and other local maps - this is the place. Statue of George Washington outside.

    This is not the most essential place to visit in Manhattan but if you are in the Wall Street area, do go inside after you've looked at the handsome Greek Revival exterior. The inside has variously-shaped rooms, including a central rotunda, done in late neo-classical style. Not every town in the USA has anything so old or so handsome. There are often historical exhibits in some of the side rooms, so enjoy those, too.

    just in front of the new york stock exchange you will find Federal Hall, I won't fill this article post with boredom rather hit up a walking tour, google while on-site or do a selfie!

    The statue that sits directly in front of this architectural masterpiece in the Wall Street area makes it a nice spot for a photo op.

    I've been to the front steps here before, but it was closed inside. This time it was open, so I got to go inside and check it out. Very cool! Amazing how much history has happened there. You can feel it around you.

    A statue of George Washington marks the spot where he took the oath to be our first president. It is easy to miss this building since it is by The Trump Building and just around the corner is the New York Stock Exchange. You can actually visit the building. There was a free United States Coast Guard Art exhibit. The Bible George Washington used to take his oath was not on display. There are National Park Rangers that give tours.

    This is an old historical building, where George Washington was inaugurated as the first President and also the Bill of Rights was introduced. Lots of information on George Washington. A building worth visiting especially if you are interested in the historical events of the US.

    Came here on a Sunday afternoon and unfortunately the place was closed but we still got to enjoy the beautiful exterior.

    If your particularly interested in George Washington and the first president then recommended. Otherwise take a look if your in the Wall Street area.

    Many people walk by without knowing the historical significance of this building. George Washington took the oath of office here and kicked off a tradition that carries on to this day.

    An amazing building with a big dome ceiling just inside the entrance . Off this are five rooms which show various aspects of George washing tons time as President. I thought the models were very interesting and was glad to have gone in- it is open week days and free admission

    Such a cool spot to visit and learn about both NYC and the USA. The tour is free and so informative. Very kid friendly.

    My wife and I took in some of the sights and sounds that were walking distance from our hotel. Federal Hall's location held the original building which served as New York's City Hall and later the capitol building of the United States during its infancy. What hallowed ground to stand at the same locale where George Washington became inaugurated as 1st President of the United States.

    We stumble upon this building while walking around Wall Street. The design is beautiful with all the large columns at the front. Well worth stopping by.

    The original Federal Hall was demolished in 1812. The only remaining part where George Washington was made President is the original balcony which is inside the building. Many people stand outside taking photos of the Washington statue, but few seem to walk inside. You are missing out if you don't go in. Lots to see and learn inside.
