Bethesda Fountain

This is Bethesda Fountain and the plaza in Central Park.  It is the "Angels of the Water Fountain."  It was made by Emma Stebbins, the first woman to do a public sculpture in New York City.  It was unveiled in 1873.  It is at the end of the mall and it has been said that "If you sit there long enough the entire city walks by."  Unfortunately the water has been turned off for winter.  

This is a closer version of the fountain.  I should have been even closer.  I give myself a "fail" for this.  I will have to go back in Spring and do a better job of showing the Angel in all her glory.  Please click on each of the images to see everything in greater detail.

Closer would have been nice! :-) In the Spring, you need to plan to return with your sisters tagging along.
