The Angel of Sunnyside

I was scouting a location in Sunnyside, Queens, and I happened to notice the fountains in a nearby apartment courtyard. Someone must have left the water running…

It was very pretty to see up close – I have no idea how water could freeze this perfectly.

On the other side of the courtyard was this second fountain. The water seems to have frozen while spiraling outward.

  1. beatiful pics…very romantic spot…i whish i could leave a coin and make a whish there…

  2. i wouldn’t be surprised if this was done on purpose…very pretty 🙂

  3. I think perhaps it is fake ice.

  4. There’s a fountainmaker here in Minneapolis that leaved the water running well into the freezing-time, until there is a giant column of ice. It’s really awesome.
