When Union Square had a lovely fountain

September 13, 2010

Union Square has been around since 1839, when it opened with a large central fountain, according to the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation.

But when Union Square was ripped up during subway construction in the 1920s, the fountain went with it.

This postmarked, stamped 1910, doesn’t indicate what we’re looking at, but I think it’s Union Square West.
