100 U.N. Plaza Waterfall

What's New












[Ed. note: We have decided to call it a waterfall when the water is falling down and a fountain when it is shooting up. And a pool when it's just sitting there.]

This is the most elaborate "private" display -- one adjacent to a residential building -- that we have found so far. We were less surprised, though, when we later searched the web and realized how prominent a building 100 U.N. Plaza actually is. (Sometimes when you are standing right next to a building, the street address doesn't mean anything to you, and all you can see are the first few floors, which look like the first few floors of any other building.)

The water at right in 2-jpg comes from a projecting concrete spout, another example of which, up and around the corner from this view, is shown in 3-jpg. On that level there is also a "regular" geyser fountain.

This page requires a 6.0+ browser for the pictures/text to display correctly. If you have an older version of Netscape, Explorer, or AOL, the text will appear cut off and the pictures distorted.

Site Tips: If you have Explorer or AOL (recent version), and a mouse with a scroll wheel, you should be able to move the mouse anywhere over the text at right and scroll it with the wheel, so you can still see the picture while reading.

Most of the pages have a large version of the main picture which you can make your wallpaper by first clicking on it to download, then right-clicking and choosing "Set as Background".
