Comment du Jour Re: Alignment of Washington Square Park Fountain, courtesy of a Curbed reader

Curbed linked to this site yesterday focusing on the article on whether the Fountain is or is not actually aligned now to the Arch (readers know that the Fountain and Arch inhabited their unaligned positions for over 137 years and that that position is in perfect alignment to the east-west axis of the park itself; therefore centered).

The piece, “Washington Square Park Whoops?,” received a lot of comment, including this:

I predict in another few decades it will be dug up and moved back to its historically correct position.”

It makes one hope that (redesigner) George Vellonakis and (NYC Parks Commissioner) Adrian Benepe are around to witness that.

Spread the love
