Roving Rube

August 8, 2003

Washington Square Park Fountain

What's New

This is the first time the Rube can remember actually seeing this fountain turned on -- this sunken circle usually has crowds surrounding fire-jugglers, skateboard high-jumpers, and other performers.

And after taking a year to get it through his head to shoot with the sun, or not at all, here only the pictures he took against or sideways the sun were any good.

This is the tallest geyser-type fountain he has come across -- does it have a pump? Or is it just the standard water pressure of NYC; the same as when a fire hydrant gets knocked over during a car chase.

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".
