  • The views are amazing. The foot traffic is not too busy. All in all this area a great place to go to see some beautiful nature and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • One of the impressive things to see at Grand Army Square at the Southeast corner of Central Park is the ornamental Pulitizer Fountain, situated at the southern end of the square at 59th Street. This is a large 22-ft high fountain designed by Austrian-American sculptor Karl Bitter in 1916. At the top is a Allegorical bronze statue of Pomona the goddess of abundance. She is holding a basket of fruit on the left side of her body. Beneath the statue are a series of basins which grow in size as water pours from one to anther in a stepped pattern. The bottom two basin levels include ornamental shell designs and spillovers. Two ornamental horn structures flank the sides of the fountain as well. These add nicely to the overall attractiveness of the Pulitzer Fountain. Unfortunately, the fountain wasn't in operation during our recent visit. This was disappointing as I've enjoyed viewing this particular fountain in NYC during previous visits.
