The most famous and busiest business street in the world. New York Stock Exchange is located here. This beautiful bull and countless businessmen are the main attraction of this place.

Charging Bull (sometimes called the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull) is a 7,000 pound bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica. The sculpture depicts a bull, the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity. Arturo Di Modica created the sculpture following the 1987 stock market crash as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people." Di Modica installed it in December 15, 1989 as "guerrilla art", front of the New York Stock Exchange as a Christmas gift to the people of New York. The police seized the illegal sculpture and placed it into an impound lot. In response to the public outcry favoring the sculpture, the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation re-installed it several blocks away to its current location in the plaza at Bowling Green where it faces up Broadway.

The sculpture is one of the most photographed pieces of art in the city and has become a popular tourist destination for visitors to the Financial District.
