A Christmas Gift: The Story of New York’s Bull

Scroll

According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s already been 25 years since that 18 foot, 3½ ton bronze bull arrived in New York City. As the paper tells the story, guerilla artist Arturo Di Modica snuck it in to the city on a flatbed truck as a Christmas gift to New York City.

Di Modica left it in the middle of Broad Street near the New York Stock Exchange. Authorities quickly removed the statue from the street and deposited it a few blocks away in its current location, where it has become a tourist attraction and a mascot for Wall Street.
