THE FOUNTAIN AT BATTERY BOSQUE PARK
The Battery Bosque Park in Lower Manhattan features a circular stone fountain with 35 in-ground illuminated jets patterned in a spiral, designed by Weisz + Yoes Architecture. I made the pictures of the fountain (above) with the Statue of Liberty in the background when I visited the CultureFest last weekend in Battery Park.
The Bosque (literally, a “small wooded area”) has shady benches and ornamental gardens. The 3.75-acre rebuilt bosque, located to the east of Castle Clinton in Battery Park, also features new lighting, Luis Sanguino's bronze sculpture, The Immigrants, a refreshment kiosk, crushed-stone pathways that tie together the park's monuments and promenade.
