Mayor Bill de Bla­sio has de­cided that the statue of a pony­tailed young girl in a wind­blown dress star­ing down Wall Street’s fa­mous “Charg­ing Bull” will re­main in place through Fe­bru­ary 2018.

The pop­u­lar statue stands on Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion prop­erty. On Mon­day, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney led a news con­fer­ence in front of City Hall to honor the artist, Kris­ten Vis­bal, and State Street Global Ad­vi­sors, the as­set man­age­ment firm that com­mis­sioned the work.

The statue was in­stalled to high­light the is­sue of gen­der dis­par­ity on cor­po­rate boards. It im­me­di­ately be­came a tourist draw and an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion.

The “Fearless Girl” statue stands in New York City.
