Charging Bull

Tourists love the bull

The charging bull has become a Wall Street icon since it's appearance in 1989. The artist, Arturo Di Modica, installed the sculpture in front of the New York Stock Exchange as a Christmas gift to the people of New York. It was impounded by the police but the public outcry inspired the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation to put it in Bowling Green Park.

Although the bull has become a symbol of the Financial District, the sculptor maintains the copyright and is not hesitant to file lawsuits when he sees it being used for profit.
