At first sight this upset me a little, thankfully if you look at the conditions of the sale, everything will be ok. Personally I hope Charles Schwab buy's it, it would be good marketing for his company. Yahoo! News - Wall Street bull statue up for sale: "Di Modica, who put 360,000 dollars of his own money into the work that was inspired by the 1987 market crash, has put some strict conditions on the sale. Not only can the statue not be moved from its current location in the heart of New York City's financial district, but the purchaser must also donate his new acquisition to the city. In return, the buyer will get a tax break, branding rights and his or her name on a plaque -- signed by Di Modica -- that will be placed near the statue."
