Adweek is reporting that, according to multiple sources, there are negotiations underway between the New York City Mayor’s Office and State Street Global Advisors, the financial firm behind the infamous “Fearless Girl” statue, about the future of both “Fearless Girl” and the iconic Wall Street “Charging Bull.”
The sculptures were installed in the Financial District some 28 years apart (“Charging Bull” was installed illegally in 1989, and “Fearless Girl” was installed legally last year on the eve of International Women’s Day), but both have become major tourist attractions. The Adweek report confirms the city’s plans to keep both sculptures together — “Fearless Girl” was originally intended to be temporary — and to find a location that is more tourist-friendly, since the current location is on a traffic island located between busy Downtown streets.
According to Adweek:
Millions of tourists and natives have indeed flocked to see the statue since its March 7, 2017, debut. Analysts estimate that the work, which cost a reported $250,000, had generated more than $7 million in free marketing after only six months.
