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 funny traditional photography with the bull is unavoidable if you are in this area of Manhattan. There's always a crowd of people here, but it's not impossible to take a fast picture.  more »
  • Yes you will have to wait in line to get your picture, but ii was worth it. This was a must see for my daughter and I. Everyone has seen this statue and knows it is on Wall Street. Being able to see i...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Definitely recommend seeing. The bull was created by an artist to honor capitalism and bull markets. Worth seeing if ever in NYC.
