The onto Wall Street to see “The Birthplace of American Democracy” Federal Hall, where the First President George Washington was sworn it. Though, many other places make the claim for the birthplace for differing reasons.

We saw the “Fearless Girl” statue that stands defiantly looking New York Stock Exchange.

Originally she was staring down the Charging Bull, but was moved in November 2018 to her new position. A plaque with footprints was placed on the original site of Fearless Girl.

The plaque below the statue states: "Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference," with SHE referring to both the gender of the subject and the fund that commissioned the arts NASDAQ ticker symbol (SHE).

The Charging Bull was guerrilla art and was sited unofficially, but was so popular it stayed.
