American Stock Exchange (NYSE AMEX)
Long before it was called the American Stock Exchange, AMEX was known as the "Curb Market" because trading was conducted by the curb on Broad Street, near the well-established New York Stock Exchange.
In 1921, the Curb moved indoors to a building on Greenwich Street in lower Manhattan and by 1930 was considered the leading international stock market, listing more foreign issues than all other U.S. securities markets combined. In 1953, The New York Curb Exchange changed its name to the American Stock Exchange.
