  • Bowling Green, speaking at the back of the charging Bull statue stands as a park there. Sitting in the Park, hopefully a bull might be overlooking from behind.

  • Square with nothing to see except the bull, you won't be able to get a picture with him, because there are hordes of tourists like you to do exactly the same thing.

  • Bowling Green is one of the oldest parks in the US and it lies in an historic area. Excellent place to rest while touring historic downtown Manhattan
  • The park is small and unremarkable at first glance and unsuspecting visitors may not be aware of its historic significance until they read about it, particularly its designation as the oldest park in the city and how it became a symbol of US independence from Britain after the existing statue of the British monarch was toppled. Hard to believe, too, that this was once the tip of Manhattan before the area was expanded through landfilling. It is worth a visit if only for these remarkable facts.
  • Historic square well maintained. Customs house is beautiful. Citibike valet. Needs bike racks.
  • Lovely little park; very popular tourist area (including charging bull). Flowers, fountain, benches - nice for a little rest on your way.
  • A great touristy area. You can walk not only in the park, but also the area. There's always excitement in the air.
