City officials have not yet identified a new permanent home for the Financial District’s “Fearless Girl” statue so she’ll have to stay put for the time being.
Last month, it was announced that the popular statue, which made its debut on International Women’s Day in 2017, would become a permanent fixture, but it would likely be moved into a more pedestrian-friendly location. There is a chance that the Charging Bull statue would also relocated, but there’s no telling if the two statues would be separated or kept together.
A spokeswoman for Mayor Bill de Blasio told the Wall Street Journal that they will be announcing “next steps” for the statues very soon but in the mean time, she will stay on Broadway.
In the meantime, the one-year anniversary of the 50-inch bronze statue is being celebrated and on this year’s International Women’s Day, Fearless Girl was part of an Old Navy installation called “Flower Empower,” in which she was adorned in a colorful floral cape, reports Fortune.
