Update: this story was changed to reflect the "Fearless Girl" statue being moved due to permit issues.

New York City's Fearless Girl is getting a new, permanent home.

The "Fearless Girl" statue, which has attracted admirers and photo-takers since its installation previous year opposite the charging bull on Wall Street, will be moved to a new location in front of the New York Stock Exchange.

Since the appearance of "Fearless Girl", more than 150 companies have added a woman to their boards, State Street Global Advisors President Cyrus Taraporevala said. "She is a potent symbol of the need for change at the highest levels of corporate America - and she will become a durable part of our city's civic life", de Blasio said in the statement. "Fearless Girl" has starred in countless selfies and photos, with tourists and New Yorkers alike.

The new home is long-term and will help alleviate pedestrian concerns.


The mayor's office said that the city is also considering moving the 'Charging Bull, ' though it did not say when or where.

The statue was originally part of a gender diversity campaign by State Street Global Advisors, a subsidiary of State Street Corp (STT.N), which said past year that 25 percent of the largest 3,000 US companies have no female directors. Artist Kristen Visbal, who is based in DE and primarily works in bronze, created the sculpture.

"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.

Visbal finds the new location "exciting", but added that the statue's message has extended beyond finance.

At a press conference previous year, Di Modica told reporters that "Fearless Girl" tarnished the positive message of the bull, which is "a better America and a better world". The artist behind "Charging Bull" complained that "Fearless Girl" encroached on his work.
