Manhattan Wandering: Fearless Girl

My Capture of Fearless Girl
I love wandering around downtown in Manhattan. I really like how Fearless Girl was put in place to challenge the Charging Bull. I captured this shot very early one morning. It is usually very crowded with tourists doing unspeakable things to the bull, you may be able to guess what part of his anatomy the rub for luck LOL.

The statue measures approximately 50 inches (130 cm) tall, and weighs about 250 pounds (110 kg).

The plaque below the statue states, "Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference," with "SHE" being both a descriptive pronoun and the fund's NASDAQ ticker symbol.
