    POPULAR LUCK
    The Charging Bull is located on a pedestrian island at the end of Broadway in Lower Manhattan. Set Downtown, the bull is a popular tourist destination that apparently draws thousands of people a day. Certainly an enormous queue of people were lined up to touch the bull for luck when my wife and I visited the area.

    You have to check it out
    When you’re the finance type or you trade stocks, you want to see the charging bull! I was a bit surprised by where it was located (right along the street and it’s not across from the NYSE), and I was even more surprised that there were lines to take photos with it. One was from the front, which you have to do…. And one from the back, because if you rub its testicles you get financial luck (bulls balls as they call it). I did not do the one from behind because the line was too long. I know it’s just a statue, but it was one of my highlights in NYC. Im glad I went!

    Maybe just an old tale
    We heard that the bull could bring luck people were queuing to touch the bull and get photos. It is well made and must weigh a lot . Here’s to see after friends getting me up the step with help from a gentleman if the bull does bring good luck .

    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.

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 :)

Unfortunately, the bull did not meet my expectations. The shiny balls of the bull were cold, and not warm to my liking. The buffet had hardly any food, and bathroom was out of order. The room service was slow, and the eggs were undercooked.

Charging Bull, or in other words the Bull of Wall Street is a bronze sculpture that stands on Broadway in the Financial District of New York City. It is definitely very nice and worth seeing but it is really a disaster if you want to have a photo with the bull. There are huge lines being formed at the front and at the back of the bull and it takes really a while before you can take a photo with the Bull's front or back.
If you want to take a photo only of a bull you have to be quick, and take it just between when nobody is posing.

Cool statue worth visiting. The Charging bull is on Wall Street and usually is followed by a line of tourists trying to take a picture with the bull. It is worth seeing.
