BETHESDA FOUNTAIN in Central Park

The Bethesda Angel looks her best in the summer……….  her pool  is filled with water lillies.

In 1868, Emma Stibbens was given the commission to design the largest fountain in NYC..  She was the first woman in New York City to receive such a commission.

SPRING has arrived in Central Park

The thermometer hit 65 today………and New Yorkers  headed for their beloved park.  The “bubble Boy” was there.  A dozen weddings.  Musicians everywhere.  Cyclists………roller bladders.  Hansom cabs.  Sun worshipers.  The Gondolier singing on the lake.  Hikers, runners.  Cute dogs.  Adorable kids.

The young lady with the guitar is part of the PEACE INDUSTRY MUSIC GROUP.  Beautiful voices………appearing at the Bethesda Fountain on week-ends.
