What is the history behind the charging bull statue near Wall Street?

The Charging Bull (sometimes called the Wall Street Bull or the Bowling Green Bull) is a 3,200 kg (7,000 pound) bronze sculpture by Arturo Di Modica that sits in Bowling Green park near Wall Street in New York City. The depiction of a bull, leaning back on its haunches, with its head lowered and ready to charge, is a symbol of a prosperous financial market.

The sculpture has become a tourist destination in the Financial District. It has also come to be an unofficial symbol of the Financial District itself, and it often appears in the local news media to punctuate stories about optimism in the financial market.

The sculptor, Di Modica, designed and made the statue as a gift to the people of New York City, hoping to bring back optimism after the 1987 stock market crash and as a symbol of the "strength and power of the American people." He spent some $360,000 to create and install the sculpture. He chose a site in Lower Manhattan, placing it under a Christmas tree in the middle of Broad Street in front of the New York Stock Exchange. The sculpture was an instant hit, but since it was placed without a permit, the police removed it to an impound lot. Public outcry was immediate. The NYC Deptartment of Parks and Recreation responded by moving the bull to a spot two blocks south of the Stock Exchange, where it now resides in the plaza at Bowling Green, facing up Broadway.

Why is downtown Manhattan called Wall Street?

the reason downtown Manhattan is known as wall street is because when the settlement was originally built there was a dividing wall between the settlers and the native injuns

Free-roaming hogs were notorious for rampaging through the precious grain fields of colonial New York city farmers. The Manhattan Island residents chose to limit the forays of these riotous hogs by erecting a long, permentant wall on the northern edge of what is now Lower Manhattan. A street came to border this wall- aptly enough named, Wall Street.

The downtown area is not called Wall Street. Wall Street is the name of a street in Downtown Manhattan. There are many neighborhoods that make up Downtown Manhattan such as Chelsea, Soho, China Town, Little Italy and a few more which include the Finacial District where Wall Street is located. Now the street is aptly named Wall Street because it was once a wall, just like Water Street was once a stream and Bridge Street was once a bridge, and so forth. I hope I cleared up any confusion.

When the Dutch settled in New York, they built a wall around their colony. This was done to keep intruders out. Eventually the wall was taken down, but pieces of it still remain. This is also the reason why the area around Wall St. is so oddly shaped compared to the rest of Manhattan, which is generally in a grid-like manner.

How did New York's Wall Street get its name?

  1. The name of the street derives from the fact that during the 17th Century, it formed the northern boundary of the New Amsterdam settlement where the Dutch had constructed a crude wall of timer and earthwork. The wall was meant as a defense against attack from Lenape Indians, New England colonists, and the British, but it was never tested in battle. The wall was dismantled by the British in 1699. Additionally, the name now represents high finance, investment banking and stock trading.
  2. The wall was built on orders from Peter Stuyvesant.

How much is a stamp with the Wall Street Ferry also says Broadway and 23 St worth?

The stamp can be purchased new or used for 15 cents, which pretty much means that a dealer isn't going to pay you anything for one.

Identify the exact stamp using a catalog. This may involve learning about perforations, watermarks and colors as well as condition. The catalog will provide a value. The value is what a collector could expect to pay for a stamp in fine/very fine condition. If selling, most cases you would be lucky to get 75% of the catalog, unless it is very valuable, then an auction would be worth looking into. The most common American catalog for identification is Scott's. Others are Stanley Gibbons, Minkus and even the US Postal Service Catalog of stamps.
