Bethesda Fountain

03-02 Bethesda FountainCrowned with the beautiful Angel of the Waters statue by Emma Stebbins (the first female sculptor in New York to receive a public commission) Bethesda Fountain stands at the very heart of Central Park.  Among the joggers, street musicians, sunbathers, Sunday painters, and others enjoying the terrace, the bronze angel presides over a glorious trickle of water into a wide pool of lilies.  Those who have never been to Bethesda know it from such movies as Enchanted, The Producers, Ransom, Elf, and many more.
