The gold vault at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The Bank holds FIVE percent of the world's 161,000 tons of gold which means they must have over 8,000 tons.
One of twelve regional capital reserve banks in the system, it is located in the heart of the financial district in downtown Manhattan. Moving gold bars just a few feet from one storage closet to another can shape the balance of financial power between nations.
