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.

  • You can spot the giant bronze charging bull a mile off as people are queuing to take photos with the bull. We queued up and got our pictures taken obviously, very very cold to touch especially in...  more »
  • The Bull is HUGE! Looks cool to take pictures on the top of it. hehe. wouldn't advise you to climb it. But the installation itself is gorgeous.  more »

  • The Charging Bull was a great and welcoming initial site once we got off the ferry. It was welcoming in the ruggedly charming way that is New York. The area there is certainly appealing for pictures with or without the bull, but be advised that the social foot traffic is very dense and can be difficult to get a picture in peak hours. I managed one and truly was a cool experience!
  • Wonderful tribute to freedom! I loved the video series. The history of the artist's idea, its development and actualization is much different than common stories. The concept of placing a massive Lady with the Torch of Freedom in America by New York City came to the artist amid the French revolution and from a dearth of human freedom around the world. His hope was that placing his Statue of Liberty where it is would spread liberty and human freedom throughout the world. Wonderful experience.
