In a letter published May 1, Michael Grunko states that the charging bull sculpture in Lower Manhattan is in front of the New York Stock Exchange.

The sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, had it installed on Broad Street in front of the NYSE on Dec. 15, 1989. He meant it as a symbol of strength in response to the 1987 stock market crash. The NYSE had the police remove it later the same day. On Dec. 21, 1989, in response to public sentiment, the bull was installed in Bowling Green (at Broadway and Whitehall Street), where it remains today.

The only thing you’ll find in front of the stock exchange, these days, will be police with assault rifles. Broad Street is heavily guarded.
