This is the NY stock exchange bull, donated by the artist, he just trucked it down and deposited it near the stock exchange. The City fathers tried to remove it and the populace objected so here he sits.
The subway system in NYC is great, it runs pretty efficiently, it is old and grungy looking, some cars are not air conditioned and when you get squished in them at rush hour it is not pleasant, we have never felt unsafe and when asked most New Yorkers will tell you which train you need to catch. We have a week's pass for $35, so pretty cheap transportation. We can take buses as well.
