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 Wall Street Bull 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.
