Central Park Fountain (by Eddy Zhang)
We reached the beautiful central park fountain close to noon on June 29. The Central Park Fountain is one of the largest fountains in New York. The fountain was built in the 1873. It is nine feet high and ninety-six feet wide.It is one of the most well-known fountains in the world. The Central Park Fountain used to supply water to New York people. In the middle of the fountain there is an angel.The angel is called Bethesda. The angel is made out of Bronze with a protective coating layer outside. The angel carries a lily in one hand and the other hand outstretches. There is water pouring out of her feet and it leads to the basin and the bottom of the fountain. The whole statute including four cherubs underneath represents temperance, purity, health, and peace. The water is believed to contain healing power. Most time people like to relax around the fountain  because it feels much cooler near the fountain.
