The Fountain Plaza and the Arch… Look Closer

Halloween comes early at Washington Square ?

Washington Square September 2012: Khalil Gibran on the Plaza, Fountain Plumes (Still) A Bit ‘Off,’ and Direction “To Happiness”

Khalil Gibran Near the Fountain…

A Closer Look

This artist, Honschar, has chalked memorable quotes on the Plaza at WSP a lot lately. He has a Facebook page.

So, if you look at the Fountain from the west, the fountain plume looks as if it is tilting south (left)…

The Fountain, looking East

When you look from the north looking south, it looks a bit more balanced.

(Still No Side Plumes.)

Looking South…

Then, on the Plaza (maybe left over from Occupy Wall Street Saturday? These photos are from Monday), this made me think … wouldn’t it be nice if there was an arrow leading the way? But maybe there is, and we don’t always realize it. Or, as my sister said, “maybe the arrow is YOU! ;)” Exactly.


In the meantime, I’d like to note where the arrow is pointing…

Four Gals by the Fountain


The three ladies together are admiring the Arch I believe (correction: one is texting or looking up directions on her cell phone); the lone gal leaning against the (plume-deprived) fountain is perhaps reading a book.

Washington Square Summer 2012

August 2012

(I don’t usually post straight-on shots of the Fountain and Arch because the aligning of the Fountain with the Arch at Fifth Avenue just seems a little more crazy as time goes on. However, since it’s not really aligned and I liked this shot, I left it in.)

You’ll notice a man in the fountain reading a book…

And closer up… so caught up! Wonder what he’s reading…

Just a few snap shots…

To Cool You Off in NYC … The Washington Square Fountain (Photo)

If you can’t be in the fountain today, hopefully looking at it will make you feel cooler!

Arch pre-Tree!

Photos — And Fountain Finally Off!

Friday - fountain off and empty

Arch (look closely - police guarding at left)

Bobby perhaps? Red-tailed hawk flies over the fountain

Policeman guarding ... pigeons?

In case you missed it, here’s the saga of the perpetually flowing fountain (November 17, 2011).
