Guided tours are approximately 30 minutes and serve as a comprehensive introduction to the Federal Reserve System and the New York Fed's role in setting monetary policy, promoting financial stability, and serving communities to advance economic growth. During the tour, visitors hear a description of the primary ways that the Federal Reserve carries out its goals as mandated by Congress-- maximum sustainable employment and price stability. It also includes a brief visit to the gold vault where the New York Fed has historically acted as a custodian for gold owned by various governments and international agencies.
