NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: The historic Bowling Green Park on Broadway is NYC's oldest park. Small but gorgeous, Bowling Green NY is home to the iconic bull statue symbolic of Wall Street, and also features a handmade, wrought-iron fence that has stood at this historic park since the 18th-Century.

Why We Go: Bowling Green NYC is small, but it's also a comfortable and quiet oasis in Manhattan's Financial District. There is plenty of seating, and in the Spring this historic New York park is transformed into a lush garden area complete with beautiful flowers and bright green grass.

  • The Charging Bull: The famous Charging Bull resides at Bowling Green NY, where he has become an iconic symbol of Wall Street and a favorite for NYC tourists hoping to get a picture with this majestic New York statue.
  • Bowling Green Fountain: The beautiful fountain at Bowling Green Park NYC stands as the centerpiece to this historic NY park, and kids and adults alike continue the tradition of throwing pennies into this serene NY fountain.

Inside Knowledge: There is a lot of history in New York City, and Bowling Green NYC is no exception. Both the NY park itself and its wrought-iron fence are on the National Register of Historic Places, and Bowling Green NY was the sight of a statue of King George that was angrily torn down during the Revolution.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring Lunch: Especially in the Spring, Bowling Green NYC is the perfect outdoor destination for lunch in NYC. Relax on a bench and enjoy some people-watching with a sandwich or salad.
  • Do Touch the Bull: If you work on Wall St. and walk by the Charging Bull without touching him, legend has it you'll be in for a long day on the job. Whether you're superstitious or not, don't miss the bull at Bowling Green NY.
  • Don't Forget Your Camera: Given the beautiful NY landscaping, the historic icon fence, and the Charging Bull statue, there are plenty of photo opportunities at Bowling Green Park NYC you will want to take advantage of.
  • Don't Hop the Fence: Alright, this isn't really possible. But do take in the impressive handmade fence surrounding this beautiful park in Manhattan.
