Located on Wall Street, Federal Hall in New York City is somewhere we never imagined we’d take an interest in amongst everything else and the other larger, and more popular, tourist attractions. Coming from the United Kingdom, the history behind it wasn’t exactly something we knew too much about.

Yet, there is important history and several interesting elements to Federal Hall.
We chose to take a look around - which is free of charge - and were instantly taken by the main reception area, which is decked out in fifty American flags all hanging from the ceiling. Each flag is an original flag collected by an artist called Mel Ziegler, between 2011-2016 as he ventured across the USA replacing distressed and damaged American flags.
It’s quite symbolic.

This is just one of the many other small, but iconic features that can be found at Federal Hall. We were very lucky to have a staff member, Jesse, provide us with extra information on George Washington’s inauguration; the reason why Federal Hall is still here today and why it stands for so much.
We really appreciated his time and enthusiasm as he went out of his way and didn’t have to show us anything.

Outside, a large, bronze statue of George a Washington catches the eye and is the focal point for most photographs.

We’d advise other tourists to take some time out to explore Federal Hall. There’s plenty to learn from it.

I've walked past the George Washington statue before but never gone into the Federal Hall, but now I recommend it. The National Park Service has done a good job to curate this superb building and tell the history of the site. And it also functions as a NYC welcome center with free maps. Entry is free. Not much from this era of old New York still exists.

This place is the home of the site of George Washington's inauguration as the first President of the United States under the Constitution. It is also a place where bill or rights introduced. In terms of history, this place holds so much into it. It is now operated by the National Park Service as a national memorial. Tip- you can take a free tour. Isn’t it amazing?

Awesome architecture and worth the stop for a quick photo. The statue is cool and the whole area is really well-maintained

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.
