Photo by myself at Bowling Green, in the Financial District.
Visitors swarmed around the Charging Bull statue near Wall Street, despite the chill and drizzle.
A bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica, the bull was installed in 1987. It is one of the most well-known pieces of public art in New York, and has become a symbol of Wall Street. A 'bullish' market is an optimistic one.
You wouldn't believe that the sculpture is 11 feet high at its tallest point. It seems lower to the ground, its posture inviting. People were constantly in front of it (and behind it!) taking photographs.
