Hanlon's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

Our final day out and about in New York is a bit of a hodgepodge of attractions. Our first order of business is a set of bull nuts.

The lesser seen side of the Charging Bull is an incredibly popular attraction. Roughly 20 people are perpetually photographing this statue near Wall Street. We arrived as people were leaving, rubbed his bronze balls for luck, and were replaced by more tourists as we wondered on.

The New York Stock Exchange lies at the corner of Wall and Broad St and sports a ridiculously huge American flag. There were officers with M16 on patrol, but they weren't guarding NYSE. They were guarding 23 Wall St, the building across the street. It used to be the JP Morgan Trust, but these days it's being converted into apartments that apparently need heavily armed guards.

One can expect to pay 4.6 million for a two bedroom, but where else can you get a view like this:

You know that is a stop on one of our tours. Please rub the ball nuts. And behind you is where Jeremy Irons robbed the Federal Reserve in Die Hard with a Vengeance and the Museum from Ghostbusters II
