New York Stock Exchange. The imposing frontage of the building of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, New York City. This is a fine example of the neo-classical school of architecture. It is typified by the dominance of geometric form; fluted composite columns topped by a triangular frieze complete with alegorical figures. Neo- classicism was very popular in North America in the 19th century. The movement originated in Rome circa 1750 as a reaction against the excesses of the Baroque and Rococo styles, and spread rapidly across the western world.
