After seeing the movie Wall Street many years ago, I firmly associated that name with large avenues covered by a never-ending human tide, thousands of pedestrians clogging each intersection, a desperate struggle for space, success, a crazy lifestyle involving more work than sleep and play together, the quest for profitability turned cash cow, and and a lust for inside fame.
Today, over two decades and at least one major stock market crash later, this is what the nearby streets look like. I work half-a-block away from Wall Street and Stone street is located another half-block away. Of course, this was a cold rainy winter night. Still. Where have the Gordon Gekko’s of this decade gone? Surely, they are nowhere near Wall Street. That’s all right. Who needs them anyway?
