Ahhhh...

Such a lovely, relaxing weekend and then...Monday...
but just look the rainbow in this fountain in Washington Square Park and think of the upcoming extended-Memorial-3-Day-weekend.  I've always loved the water and fountains relax me (and leave it to Martha Stewart for a tutorial on how to make your own).  So, here are some that I like, kicked off by the tiniest, most adorable baby ducks ever down at Nelson A. Rockefeller Park: click to watch it as a video until I figure out how to get it to work correctly ;-)
The courtyard at The Frick Collection
The New York City Waterfalls: installed from June through October 2008 by Olafur Eliasson
7 World Trade Center
Down by South Street Seaport
Over by Bryant Park
Hudson River by Christopher Street
By City Hall
620 Loft and Garden near Rockefeller Center
A fairly new one by Canal Street
And one from the west coast: outside San Francisco's Ferry Building Marketplace

Hi Jen, Have you been to the fountain at the Ferry Market Building yet? It's a pretty cool one. You can climb the stairs up the back and take pictures in between those structures. Thanks for repping my side of the country. =)

This is such a lovely post... makes me miss NYC! I'm an NYU student, so I'm well acquainted with the WSP fountain :) Good thing I'm back in the city in a week!

Great pictures of the fountains! My little one loves to play in them and sometimes I get scared when we come across one because she couldn't resist jumping in to try the water, lol.
