Neighborhood Stories: A Fountain of Memories


The fountain is the reincarnation of a former fountain that held down that corner 100 years ago. The main jet sends a spray 10 feet high, rather than 70 feet as the original did, and smaller jets join in just below. The water is recycled, instead of sent off to the sewer, as the original did. The fountain setting is sedate and calming, though at night, when colored lighting makes the water dance, it gets pretty exciting.
