Girl Scouts posed with "Fearless Girl" on March 27,2017, just after the statue went up for International Women's Day.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Thursday that the statue, which has stood its ground against Charging Bull at Bowling Green since March of a year ago, will be installed in front of the Exchange, three blocks away.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D), in partnership with State Street Global Advisors, the management group that commissioned the statue, announced on Thursday that Fearless Girl will moved from its current location by the Bowling Green park to face the New York Stock Exchange.

De Blasio's office also said that city officials are "looking at a similar move" to the area near the NYSE for the "Charging Bull" statue. She will relocate to the NYSE by the end of the year. "This move to a new location will ensure that her message and impact will continue to be heard, as well as improve access for visitors". "SSGA President and CEO Cyrus Taraporevala said that "[SSGA's] hope is that by moving her closer to the NYSE she will encourage more companies to take action".




But not everyone has loved her. Di Modica wanted the girl gone, saying she altered the dynamic of his bull and was no more than what he called "an advertising trick".

That's not the only controversy Fearless Girl has weathered. "We're grateful to State Street for their partnership in keeping the Fearless Girl here in NYC". So the city extended her initial week-long permit to make her a permanent installation downtown. The statute is now located at the narrow northern tip of Bowling Green park, with barely any buffer separating visitors from the traffic on Broadway. Visitors often step into the street while crowding around both Fearless Girl and the Bull to get the ideal picture.

"I'd love it if she could stare down the Charging Bull for the rest of time; but even if she can't, I'm glad she will stay in the neighborhood and remind those who pass by the Stock Exchange that it's past time for companies to put more women in boardrooms and in charge", Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer said.

"Fearless Girl" is not without detractors, including Arturo Di Modica, who objected to the placement in front of his "Charging Bull".
