Fountain and pool, Madison Square

What's New

What is the difference between a "reflecting" pool and just a regular pool? Does the water have to be a certain depth? Here it barely covers the bottom -- there is a second pool, at the north end of the square in front of the Farragut Memorial, which is reflective.

Or maybe you just need enough sun -- this one gets only dappled light. The fountain itself is delicately modeled with three basins (in context), each emerging out of the other and culminating in a bud (2-jpg) on the top. The water trickles, quietly.

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".
