Big Machines Advance on Washington Sq. Park Fountain!

New, 17 comments

On Wednesday, a day after we took note of a newly dug grave, a reader emailed, "They're tearing up the fountain at Washington Square Park!" Stop. The. Presses! Still, as we'd not yet heard the collective sound of 10,000 souls crying out in grief, we were circumspect, but dropped by regardless. Sure enough, while the fountain itself is not yet under direct assault, the plaza around it has all but been stripped bare by a bevvy of backhoes. The quest to move this bad boy by 23 feet will not be denied!
