It was far too busy with people barging to get a photo. It's one of those things to do to say you've visited it.

Nice site to see if you're heading to the stock exchange, Wall Street or the World Trade Center. Do not go on a Saturday morning! There was a line up to take a photo. Went by on other days and there were only a few people

It was a great experience to see the bull in person, but it's also very hard to take a picture without anyone else in it. There are hundreds people around and the waiting time is around 20 mins.

You have seen it on TV and movies, now you can go see it in person. Feel free to take pictures and grab it by the horns....or where ever else you want to.

This statue, at ground level, is a replica of a full-grown charging bull, and represents those periods of growth in the New York stock market. A bronze statue of over 3 tons, it's a popular spot for tourists and picture-taking. Some say rubbing the bull brings good luck - so choose your spot! The bull is located on Broadway near... More

There are a thousand people here at any given time waiting to take photos. As such, it is difficult to snap a photo without someone else in it. It is a nice sculpture nonetheless but don't always expect a pleasant experience.

The charging bull is an interesting sculpture, however I am not so sure what all the fuss is about! A nice piece of artwork to see but not amazing!

Situated at the southern Bowling Green end of Wall Street, the life size bronze charging bull sculpture is now a key tourist sight. When I visited in late October the sculpture was surrounded by a crowd of tourists constantly taking pictures of both ends of the poor beast (it's apparently lucky to hold it's nether regions !). Worth a look... More

Totally touristy and almost always surrounded by camera happy tourists- this is an attraction which you visit for a selfie or a photo to declare "You been there and done that". Give it a miss if you have to -but do visit if you are in the area -at least you can see the crowds busy snapping away and do... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
