Filmed in July 2020 during #Phase3 of Covid in lower Manhattan. The video started at the waterfront of Brookfield Place, via Battery Park, via Greenway, via Rector St, via Broadway, and ended at Charging Bull. It was a sunny day, and the water was so beautiful. We hope through this video you get to enjoy the summer of New York.

About Charging Bull:
Charging Bull, is a “Wall St icon”, sometimes referred to as the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull. It is a bronze sculpture that stands in Bowling Green in the Financial District in Manhattan, New York City.
The sculpture was created by Sicilian artist Arturo Di Modica. On December 14, 1989 Di Modica arrived on Wall Street with Charging Bull on the back of a truck and illegally dropped the sculpture outside of the New York Stock Exchange.
Now, the 7,100-pound (3,200 kg) sculpture is located in a traffic median of Broadway just north of Bowling Green, adjacent to 26 Broadway to the east and 25 Broadway to the west. It stands 11 feet (3.4 m) tall and measures 16 feet (4.9 m) long. It depicts a bull, the symbol of aggressive financial optimism and prosperity, leaning back on its haunches and with its head lowered as if ready to charge. The sculpture is both a popular tourist destination, which draws thousands of people a day, as well as a symbol of Wall Street and the Financial District, being described as “one of the most iconic images of New York” and a “Wall Street icon”.
If you look closely, you can see that
“The Bull’s head is lowered, its nostrils flare, and its wickedly long, sharp horns are ready to gore; it’s an angry, dangerous beast. The muscular body twists to one side, and the tail is curved like a lash: the Bull is also energetic and in motion.”
Charging Bull, then, shows an aggressive or even belligerent force on the move, but unpredictably. It’s not far-fetched to say the theme is the energy, strength, and unpredictability of the stock market.
