Because there are two tails, that and the one that is made to take the picture in front of the bull. We didn't do this last. But the guide said that in high season, the queues are horrible. They say it brings luck to touch the eggs and horns, and if you do, you are more likely to return to new York, other than having luck with your work... myth? Truth? I don't know, but I did it just in case.
Amazing larger than life bull made of bronze. It is work to have a quick look at this as well if you visit New York City as this is an iconic sculpture in NYC in my opinion. I happened to go to this place at night and there were not much crowd so it was bit easier to take a picture with this.
Located near Wall Street the bronze bull is a huge tourist draw. Featured in several movies, it presents a perfect photo opportunity, although you may have to wait as so many people appear determined to take a photo under the bull and between its back legs. This is an iconic statue on Wall Street Worth the short wait to get a picture. There may be a short line.
