Mid-October, Fountain Still On at Washington Square – How Much Longer?

The fountain at Washington Square Park typically gets turned off each year in mid-October (it varies but that is the most typical time in recent years).

In 2011, during the height of Occupy Wall Street, the fountain was left on into mid-November. (The apparent goal? To deter the basin of the fountain being utilized for protester use.)

Due to the weather currently – which is so summery – and no obvious Occupy Wall Street-like presence, the season will likely be extended. How long…? We will see.

What else do you see – or not see – in the photo above?
