    The Charging Bull
    The Charging Bull, on Wall Street is an obvious symbol of the financial significance of this district on Wall street. Many admirers flock to take a close look..... Interesting! It's on the pavement and it's there for all to see, for free.

    Bring it on!
    There is a huge statue of a bull in the Financial District. I was intrigued to check it out on my visit to New York City. I visited in October 2023 and the statue is quite easy to find. It's not far from the Stock Exchange and not too far from Battery Park. When I was there the area was buzzing and there were two queues of people waiting to get their picture taken with the bull. Some lining up to be photographed with the head and some in the opposite direction to get their picture taken with the rear. Intriguing....

    Make It A Stop While Near the Stock Exchange
    The statue is as advertised. A symbol of the U.S. financial sector and the markets. Just know that when you go there will be a long line queued of people waiting to take pics. Statue is quite sturdy. It's a 5-minute walk to the NY Stock Exchange, about a 10-minute walk to the 9/11 Memorial, and about 2-3 mins from Battery Park.

    Good Photo Stop Near Wall Street
    The Wall Street Bull or Charging Bull is a symbol of Wall Street and the New York financial industry. I would certainly not make a special trip to see it but if you are nearby in Lower Manhattan, it makes for a good photo stop. Beware there will be a long queue waiting to get a photo with the bull. Best to just snap one and move on to more interesting things.

    Can't miss the bull!
    The bull is iconic and just a fun place to stop while touring the Wall Street area. There was a line for photos but it went quickly and gave everyone an opportunity to have a photo without other people in it. Great photo op!

    An iconic part of New York of the 1980's
    The Charging Bull sculpture has taken on so many meanings over the years. The excess of the 1980's, the greed of Wall Street, a struggling and a successful economy and success. Whatever you want it to mean, it is a part of the New York fabric and a must see when visiting downtown Manhattan. Get to the sculpture early for a good picture because it gets crowded especially during the summer and on weekends.

    Very popular, why???
    I stopped by here on my way to Fraunces Tavern. Found about a hundred tourists in line to take a photo with the bull. Not sure how this bull became so popular? I was happy to see it but not willing to stand in line for a photo. Took my photo from the side. Ha!

    Prefer the Birmingham Bull!
    It was good to see the Bull and it’s always nice to see statues, but watching people take part in the tradition of rubbing its balls is very strange. The statue of the bull also has its ribs showing so it’s quite sad that it doesn’t look healthy. I may be biased but I much prefer the statue of the bull in Birmingham!

Senselessly queued to rub a statue of utterly dubious merit.
Being accosted by an aggressive flower seller! trying to intimidate me with a wooden club didn't enhance the experience.
Amaxing what people (myself included) will fall for if something is hyped up enough.
Horrible worthless experience.

This is an iconic statue, however the area is so full of people that it is impossible to get anywhere near it. Where the statue is situated is kind of between two roads, so not much paving for people to stand on either.

If you go you really should plan to arrive before 7 am. There are very few people at that time. If you go later be prepared to wait in line and have people cut infront of you.

Close to Wall Street you can watch people queueing up to "polish" the Bull's scrotum which should result in being lucky to make money?!

The funniest thing is to take pictures of tourists pursuing the activity of rubbing the testicules of the charging bull 😉

Nice attraction to see in an area with lots going on. There was a little line of people who patiently waited to take their photo with the bull :)
