"The Bull will nearly certainly be moved and will very likely wind up reunited with 'Fearless Girl, ' " de Blasio's spokesman, Eric Phillips, wrote on Twitter.

"Fearless Girl" became an overnight sensation past year, when State Street's investment arm installed the 50-inch bronze statue to defiantly face off the "Charging Bull" of Wall Street.

New York's "Fearless Girl" statue that has become a global symbol of female business prowess will be moved from her spot staring down Wall Street's bronze "Charging Bull" to a new home facing the New York Stock Exchange. Due to its popularity, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio extended the statue for a year in a contract that expired April 2. "Since Fearless Girl's placement, more than 150 companies have now added a woman to their board". "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".

A spokesman for Mayor de Blasio said the girl and the bull may be reunited soon. "Fearless Girl" has starred in countless selfies and photos, with tourists and New Yorkers alike.

Cathedral Village says it's cooperating with the investigation and completing its own internal investigation. Even the Philadelphia district lawyer's workplace and also also the Pennsylvania attorney general&rsquo.

The statue, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors, the asset management business of State Street Corporation, became a sensation after its installment.

His lawyer, Norman Siegel, told the New York Times that "Fearless Girl" fundamentally changed the meaning of "Charging Bull". That way, it can serve as a "constant reminder of the work that public companies still have to do" to increase gender diversity on their boards. She hopes that by remaining in the public eye, "Fearless Girl" will "continue to inspire the global community regarding gender collaboration in every aspect of life".

The icon did have her critics though, like the artist behind the Charging Bull, who said the addition of this statue violated his rights. But public support was so great that the city gave it a permanent home nearby.
