The Wall Street bull got a bit covered by NYC artist Olek, who is a crochet titan. She could crochet your house if she wanted to. Her newest crochet victim or lucky guest also had some video shot with it, because we think most of you would like to see how one crochets on Wall Street. Has to be a first, a least since the days of Washington.

Olek says of the bull, "I started it with a bike and ended up with the Charging Bull as a Christmas gift to NYC and a tribute to the sculptor of the bull, Arturo di Modica, who in another guerrilla act, placed the bull on Wall Street in Christmas of 1987 as a symbol of the 'strength and power of the American people' following the 1987 Stock Market crash."
