There isn't much to do here except take a picture with the Bull and view the outside of the NYSE but if you're going to the Statue of Liberty then you're just a quick walk from both of these sites. So what the hell? You might as well take a look.

This is statue that stands in the northern portion of the Bowling Square. It’s the bull that is feature in all the movies and TV ads & programs. Tried to get there early in the morning before all the bus load of tourist come, so you can get a nice picture of the statue.

The Bull is certainly a landmark in the Wall Street district. It's even touristy on a regular week day, many are there to snap photos and rub the Bull's horn (for good fortune).Recommended for:Local Culture

Arturo di Modica sculpted the "Charging Bull" after the Stock Market Crash of 1987. In late 1989 the bull was finally placed in Bowling Green Park next to Wall Street. The Bull is symbolic of the "strength and power of the American People."

Tourists lined up just to have a friend snap photos of them cupping the bull's balls. People watching opportunity aside, not worth going out of your way to see. Loaded with street vendors selling bull and Wall Street trinkets.

The artist who created the Charging Bull statue originally placed it on Wall Street and he didn't ask for permission to put it there. As the perfect Basquiat-esque gesture of artistic rebellion, this is the stuff of legend. Since the statue also represents the relentless optimism of American capitalism, the city fathers finally let it stay.

Looking for money and success? The Wall Street Bull in the Financial District is then your New York lucky charm! The bronze sculpture is one of the most iconic landmarks of New York, and one of the most challenging to take a picture of. My advice is to forget the politeness, if you ever want a picture alone :)

As we all know, Wall Street recently proved itself as prone to stampeding as the Charging Bull. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like they acquired one of the bull's more positive characteristics, sense of mind.
The Charging Bull monument is an emotive statue of a beast located in Lower Manhattan. If you want to capture a great photo of the attraction, come early to avoid the crowds of fellow tourists.
