"The drop in the pound against the dollar is huge, I believe it is a 30 year low. It's a huge impact on an already very strong dollar. And indeed you didn't just see it in the pound, I suppose, because possible worries that this Brexit vote could spread to other countries, you saw the euro get week as well."

"From our standpoint the positives are, you know what? It's a great place to go on vacation, you're going to get a lot for your dollar, that's for sure. But the negatives for the average Britain, it's going to be tough. They could go back into recession. They were having trouble anyway. The same with the EU, their economies were weak. This is only going to weaken them a little more in the short term."

"We just used the credit card for breakfast this morning and I don't really know how much it cost. I know how much it cost in dollars but with the conversion rate to sterling I don't know what that will be."
Reporter: "It's going to be sticker shock when you get home."
The pound suffered one of its biggest one-day falls in history Friday, plummeting more than 10 percent in six hours on concerns that severing ties with the EU will hurt the U.K. economy and undermine London's position as a global financial center.
Authorities including the International Monetary Fund, the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of England had warned Britain's exit would send shivers through a world economy that is only slowly recovering from the global crisis that began in 2008. Now economists will wait to see if their predictions come to pass.
Economists say the U.S. dollar will benefit from a weaker pound, but the worry is the plunge could spread to the euro, further weaking the economies of the European Union.
A weaker pound means that the cots of goods will be cheaper, allowing for an influx of U.S. dollars in the form orf tourism.
For British tourists in New York City, the reverse is happening. The overnight plunge made breakfast for Brexit supporters Jayne and Peter Waller more expensive. "So what. So What," said Jayne Weller.
