One of the most photographed icons in the business district of New York's El Toro Wall Street, made in bronze with a weight of 3,200 kg and the author is Arturo Di Modica, who wanted to customize with this figure, the symbol of success, realization, profits, aggressiveness, optimism and financial prosperity, which ironically was born as a gift to the city after the crisis of 1987. Di Modica, invested his savings, about $ 360,000 in construction and with a large Christmas tree in the middle of Broad street, in front of the New York Stock Exchange, on December 15th in 1987 the bull was moved to the street, some lookers were wondering how a huge sculpture appeared there. They didn’t have any permission and was impounded, but the voices of protest made the bull back and the Parks Department installed it in Bowling Green, at the end of Broadway Avenue, Some tourists believe in the myth that rubbing the testicles of the bull will help to get good luck. The author continues with the rights of the statue and on several occasions sued companies that tried to benefit financially in unauthorized reproductions.
In front of the Bull of Wall Street there is a webcam that focuses directly to him and ample space, so you can stand there and call relatives so they can see you standing right there, if you do not have a webcam on your computer. The direction of the webcam is http://chargingbull.com/video.html
It is the main street of the financial district in Manhattan, today Wall Street continues to represent wealth, prosperity and for some, greed. Wall Street is the name of the narrow street in New York's lower Manhattan, between Broadway and the East River.
Considered the historical heart of the Financial District, is the principal and permanent home of the Stock Exchange in New York, the architecture of Wall Street is generally based on the Golden Age; there are also some influences of decorative art in the neighborhood.
The most important buildings in the area are: New York Stock Exchange built in the early twentieth century but with a classic aspect, and The Federal Hall, built in the late eighteenth century with the Gothic style. Going through the streets during weekdays you can see a maelstrom of suits, heels, ties and a lot of coffee, IPad and mobile phones, its home of the top executives of international finance.
In non-working days, however, the Financial District becomes even boring. Inspired by the stock market crash in 1987, the sculptor Arturo Di Modica created the Statue of the bull with 7,000 pounds (3175kg) as a sign of optimism.

When you walk out of the elevators on the 102nd floor, for maximum dramatic effect, there’s a two-minute video that captures the spirit of today’s New York to get your heart pumping. Then the screen lifts and unveils the magnificent view.
On May 2015, the One World Observatory Deck opened on the 100th & 102nd Floor at One World Trade Center making it the highest observatory deck. On the 100th floor of the Observatory, also known as the Discovery Level, you will experience expansive 360-degree views in all directions.

Building one of the safest and most technically advanced buildings in the world is a challenge to say the least. Along with security issues, massive costs and weather issues, the project required a mind-blowing amount of materials: over 45,000 tons of structural steel, 1.300 workers per day and 200,000 cubic yards of concrete. That’s enough concrete to build a sidewalk from New York to Chicago!
