Category Archives: Cherokee and 71st Fountain
Found: June 18, 2014
This fountain is found on the traffic island formed where Cherokee Drive forks off of West 71st Street. The fountain features a cherub or angel holding what I think is a fish. The water for the fountain comes out of the fish’s mouth. There are three fauns, or satyrs, sitting around the bowl of the fountain and then the water falls into the basin below. The basin had very little water in it when I took the picture. A lion’s head can be found at the base of the fountain. There are nice flowers and plants planted around the basin and a small tree grows behind the fountain.
If this fountain has a particular name, I have not been able to find it. Therefore, I have named it after the streets.
