- Displayed in its current location since 1989, this 7,000-pound bronze sculpture has become a famous symbol of American capitalism.
- The 7,000-pound Wall Street Bull was created in optimistic response to the 1987 stock market crash and dropped in front of the New York Stock Exchange overnight in 1989. http://tmout.us/knzkC
- Created by Italian-American artist Arturo Di Modica after Black Monday 1987. Statue is 7500 pounds. Left on Wall St in middle of night as a gift to the city. More info on this statue via our blog.
- Take a picture with the bull's balls!
- Touch the bull's balls for good luck
- Go for the balls! Brings you luck and prosperity ;)
- The bronze sculpture in Bowling Green Park symbolizes financial prosperity and has been a Wall Street icon since it was installed in 1989.
- Tem fila para tirar foto, mas vale a pena esperar :-)
- The sculpture is said to provide good financial luck to both stock traders and tourists who keep key parts of the artwork well polished with constant hand rubbing.

- The back of the bull is just as popular of a photo op as the front of the bull...strange. I don't know the guy in the pic but he just seemed way to happy with bull testicles in his hand.
- Have to touch the Balls, liberating!
- Kiss the Bull's arse for good luck! ;-)
- Try getting on top of it, if there's no cops around and try to really grab the bull by its horns. It does give a certain sense of satisfaction ;)
- Beware of douchebags that jump ahead of you in order to snap a picture with the bull when you've clearly been waiting longer.
- Stop across the street @ chipolte for a great burrito.
- Charging Bull should be the appropriate check in :)
- 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.
- A great street metal art
- Rub the bull for good luck. 7000 lb. is a lot of bull!
