Featured Fountain!

As we celebrate the Greenway’s drinking this Spring, we call your attention To this installation near Pier 97:


This modern fountain is typical of the those installed in Hudson River Park from here down to the Battery.  One interesting feature is that these fountains are, at least theoretically, able to operate year-round due to an anti-freeeze valve.  There is a slight delay in the action, but the result is cool NYC water even through the Winter.


If you stop by, you might also check out this wonderful art installation at nearby Pier 96:


Peer inside this giant metal bottle and you will find it very comfortably equipped for an extended sea voyage.
