Ticker tape

:

What better symbol of the heart of the financial district. The first stock ticker system using a telegraphic printer was invented by Edward A. Calahan in 1863 and used in New York City in 1867. Ticker tape in the form of confetti is also a symbol of all the parades honoring our heroes or events like the end of a World War in the Canyon of Heroes in lower Manhattan.
