3.6
The Federal Reserve Bank of New York is one of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks of the United States. It is located at 33 Liberty Street, New York, NY. It is responsible for the Second District of the Federal Reserve System, which encompasses New York State, the 12 northern counties of New Jersey, Fairfield County in Connecticut, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Working within the Federal Reserve System, the New York Federal Reserve Bank implements monetary policy, supervises and regulates financial institutions and helps maintain the nation's payment systems.
Among the other regional banks, New York Federal Reserve Bank and its president are considered first among equals. Its current president is William C. Dudley. It is by far the largest (by assets), most active (by volume) and most influential of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks.
The New York Fed publishes a monthly recession probability prediction derived from the yield curve and based on the work by Dr. Arturo Estrella & Dr. Tobias Adrian.
Their models show that when the difference between short-term interest rates (using three-month T-bills) and long-term interest rates (using ten-year Treasury bonds) at the end of a Federal Reserve tightening cycle is negative or less than 93 basis points positive that a rise in unemployment usually occurs.

  • Very interesting guided tour. You get to know about Federal Reserve Bank structure, about NYC branch building, get to see the vault. Keep in mind it’s not very easy to book. Check the official site...  more »
  • We didnt know you could do a tour of this place and that it is free but we will certainly get tickets next time we go to New York. We saw the building from outside and took photos whilst passing.  more »

  • The privately owned Federal Reserve definitely caused The Great Depression by contracting the amount of currency in circulation by one third from 1929 to 1933. The Federal Reserve System is accountable to no one; it has no budget; it is subject to no audit; and no Congressional committee knows of, or can truly supervise, its operations. The Federal Reserve, virtually in total control of the nation's vital monetary system, is accountable to nobody—and this strange situation, if acknowledged at all, is invariably trumpeted as a virtue.
  • I originally came here as a consolation prize for not being able to get into the stock exchange and wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I surprised! The museum tour is excellent and gives a good overview of the history of the building and the purpose the Fed serves. Next they take you underground into the vault to gawk at massive piles of gold bars which is worth the trip alone. Lastly they gave us little bags of shredded money as souvenirs. What a trip! The tour's pretty short but you're free to wander around after. It's also free but there is a very limited number of spots available so make sure to plan ahead. If you're in the area I'd definitely recommend checking it out
