  • Not a big deal. Only people shooting pictures of a point that does not represent much historical or tourism.

  • Some say that touching the bull brings financial prosperity, it doesn't matter if it's true. It's a nice picture in the financial district to take home!  more »
  • We really liked the bull although not impress both in person so it cost 300,000 once dollars, the sculpture depicts a bull, the symbol of optimism, aggressiveness and financial prosperity; flexed on their front feet and with his head slightly down as if it was about to RAM. In the financial area and is an obligatory stop in NY.

  • 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.
