Found: April 22, 2016
In the collection of subdivisions surrounding the Hallbrook Country Club is this fountain. It is in a traffic circle about a block north of West 119th Street and is a few blocks east of the One Nineteen shopping center.
It is a pretty sizable fountain with a stone-rimmed basin, jets in the middle and around the outside. There are four benches sitting around it, spaced out 90 degrees apart from each other.
When I was out there, there were a couple of ducks checking out the fountain. It looked like they wanted to go for a swim but weren’t too sure about the fountain parts. I tried to stay away from them and let them be. I got a little too close and they started to walk away but hopped back up on the ledge after I backed off. They were still there when I left.
