3.4
#39 of 161 in Sightseeing in New York City
Monument Tourist Spot
View the internationally recognized symbol for Wall Street at Charging Bull. Arturo Do Modica created this bronze sculpture after the market crash in 1987 as a sign of American strength and power. Modica then illegally placed the statue--which is 3.4 m (11 ft) tall--in from of the New York Stock Exchange on December 15, 1989. Police took the statue away, but, due to popular support, it was put back less than a week later. Visit the 3,200 kg (7,100 lb) sculpture to see why the people of New York demanded that the city return this work of art to its streets for public viewing.

  • A quick photo for souvenir of the place is práxi. But keep in mind that it will be very busy. Valley meet.

  • This was ok to see but really not worth it. Too many people crammed around it, all trying to rub the bull's "private" parts as some think it is good luck?  more »

  • Iconic statue in the middle of a couple of very busy roads. There is a ton of stuff to do around this area. You can easily spend the day down there. Go early or go late in the day if you want a good picture with the Charging Bull. It gets crowded.
  • I would highly recommend you visit this popular sightseeing spot in the morning! You could get nicer pictures before tons of ppl come with huge groups!!! When you the this bull, you will know where should you touch to get good luck by seeing where is golden color.
  • A very iconic place to go see. It's in the middle of an intersection so you have to watch for traffic. Was here at night and was still very busy making it hard to get good pictures.
  • I buy and sell stocks so visiting this place was on my bucket list. The artist captured this bull so beautifully with so much detail....it definitely looks like a charging bull. The fearless girl was so cool, how she standing right in front of the bull....no fear.
  • This was really great to experience but there were so many people there taking pictures it was impossible to get a good picture. All the tourists were taking pictures of the bulls butt which was weird and funny. Definitely a site to see.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
