Pulitzer Fountain is an outdoor fountain located in Manhattan's Grand Army Plaza in New York. The fountain is named after newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer who died in 1911 having bequeathed $50,000 for the creation of the fountain. Pulitzer intended his fountain to be "like those in the Place de la Concorde, Paris, France." The fountain was designed by the architect Thomas Hastings, and crowned by a statue conceived by the sculptor Karl Bitter. The fountain was dedicated in May 1916.

  • Pulitzer Fountain in front of Grand Army Plaza on 5th Avenue in NYC is very pretty. Certainly worth a photo stop when walking on 5th Avenue.  more »
  • Really attractive Fountain in Central Park. It’s worth a stop off for a few photos. The water was not flowing so bit average.  more »
