The Charging Bull was a great and welcoming initial site once we got off the ferry. It was welcoming in the ruggedly charming way that is New York. The area there is certainly appealing for pictures with or without the bull, but be advised that the social foot traffic is very dense and can be difficult to get a picture in peak hours. I managed one and truly was a cool experience!
Wonderful tribute to freedom! I loved the video series. The history of the artist's idea, its development and actualization is much different than common stories. The concept of placing a massive Lady with the Torch of Freedom in America by New York City came to the artist amid the French revolution and from a dearth of human freedom around the world. His hope was that placing his Statue of Liberty where it is would spread liberty and human freedom throughout the world. Wonderful experience.
