The 'Fearless Girl' statue is placed at Bowling Green, facing the famous Wall Street Bull statue

It was placed by a corporation and installed with a 30 day permit that was extended, but the sculptor of the bull statue argued it should be removed. In November 2018, the statue was removed from Bowling Green and relocated to a permanent position facing the New York Stock Exchange building.
