  • Amazing larger than life bull made of bronze. It is work to have a quick look at this as well if you visit New York City as this is an iconic sculpture in NYC in my opinion. I happened to go to this place at night and there were not much crowd so it was bit easier to take a picture with this.
  • Located near Wall Street the bronze bull is a huge tourist draw. Featured in several movies, it presents a perfect photo opportunity, although you may have to wait as so many people appear determined to take a photo under the bull and between its back legs. This is an iconic statue on Wall Street Worth the short wait to get a picture. There may be a short line.
