The location of the New York Stock Exchange. A monument to greed and materialism and a perversion of capitalism, where futures are carelessly traded like commodities.
The 2008 recession was caused by Wall Street's unrestrained greed.

A place of wealth and a place of death *because* not only is the NY Stock Exchange on Wall Street, but at the end is the Trinity Church cemetary, with a bunch of dead souls. The reason it is named "Wall" Street is because when NYC was just a village, the residents built a WALL out of pallisades (wood) as protection from the wild things in the forests north (around Christopher street).
Damn, one day you're a millionaire on Wall Street, the next you're in the Trinity yard at the other end.

Patrick Bateman is a yuppie. He works at wall street

Most non-yuppies hate yuppies mainly because of the fact that they could never be the yuppie if they ever wanted to. Face it, every non-yuppie wants to be a yuppie, and every yuppie pretends to be a bohemian to add more dimensions in their materialistic lives.

Face it fellas, Yuppies , with their ivy league education, slicked hair ; Armani suits and Versace Loafters...with reservations each night at the best restaurants...driving the best cars, living in the best high rise apartment, live a life that most can only dream of.

THIS IS the American dream, anything else is but an illusory alternative. This is REALITY.
