    I go just about every day, and I agree it's the weather more than anything that keeps people away from the spray of the fountain. The new fountain has jets shooting from the sides so there's even...

    I agree they knew what they were doing. Either it was a conscious effort to keep out the less desirables by way of removing the favorite hang-outs, or they seized the opportunity to at last remove...

    What's odd is that they kept any of them, especially the one on the right since they have to fit into the moved plaza (and they still remain in the way of NYU's commencement ceremony).

    Tremendous view, that. Notice the Christmas tree beneath the arch, there for the movie. It was redecorated better than it normally is - take note! whoever decorates that tree every year. Evenly...

    ^Who wouldn't? ;)

    Last night I noticed the trees in the park were brightly illuminated and assumed they must be filming something. So I walked on into the park, sure enough Will Smith was doing...

    The fountain runs quite often throughout the warm months and most often the performers do their thing around the adjacent plaza, so no it doesn't put a damper on the performers when it's on. I don't...

    They could replace the worn concrete and asphalt with nice stone and be done with it. Clean that bathroom too.
