Three Coins in the Fountain…

As a follow up to the Tying the Knot post, some of you may be looking to capture your special day with pictures or video. Clearly, the scene should be memorable and attractive and what could be a better backdrop than a scenic fountain?!? For those getting married at the Manhattan office of the City Clerk, the fountain in City Hall Park is just a few blocks south and would be the perfect photo op for the newlyweds!

Of course there are many other famous fountains in New York, the fountain in Washington Square Park, Bethesda Found in Central Park (said to be the inspiration for the introduction to the television show “Friends”), Pulitzer Fountain in Grand Army Plaza-Manhattan (rumored to have been visited by F Scott Fitzgerald and his wife for moonlit dips), Bailey Fountain in Grand Army Plaza-Brooklyn, Rockefeller Fountain in the Bronx Zoo, The Uni-sphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens and South Beach Park’s Dolphin Fountain in Staten Island to name just a few.
