Artist Kristen Visbal’s “Fearless Girl” drew crowds Wednesday that initially came to pose for pictures with the bull, but the novelty quickly became a New York hot spot.
She wanted to pose with the sculpted girl “because I just wanted to look at her and wanted to feel like her.”
State Street Global Advisors, the Boston-based investment giant, had the statue created to push companies to increase the number of women directors.
“Well, we really wanted the bull to have a partner, and a partner that we thought was worthy of him,” Heinel said.
This week, McCann New York, a top advertising agency, installed the statue of the girl before dawn Tuesday — with a city permit for one week.

It’s also a reminder to Florida and Tampa Bay companies: Few women serve as directors of larger companies in this market.
Nearly 60 percent have less than 15 percent of female directors.
Among Tampa Bay’s more recent female directors are Ann Sarnoff, the chief operating officer of BBC Worldwide North America, who serves on HSN’s board.
