    Surprisingly this iconic sculpture was not commissioned but dumped under the Wall Street Christmas Tree by artist Arturo Di Modica – he wanted to give the city a gift and promote himself. True story. Read more

    Charging Bull is 16 feet long and weighs 7,000 pounds. Di Modica spent $360,000 of his own money to make Charging Bull. The statue is technically on long-term loan to the city.

    Good luck trying to get past the japanese tourists to try snap a picture of this statue. They are really rude and won't mind anybody else standing there. They also have a strange addiction to touch it

    With tons of people fanatically molesting the bull, not sure if it's worth the pain. You'll end up w/ a group photo w/ you squeezed in the middle, 20 people looking away, and a couple of horns maybe?!
