Pomona amid Manhattan splendor

While in New York City, I made a point of tracking down the fountain depicting the Goddess Pomona. It’s just below Central Park in the Grand Army Plaza outside the Plaza Hotel. Ooo-la-la!

It’s a grand location for a grand figure. Tony Fifth Avenue is a few steps to the east. Horse-drawn carriages clip-clop past. In the other half of the plaza across Central Park South, facing the Goddess, is, of all people, General Sherman astride a horse.

The Goddess of Pomona blog had a nice writeup on the Pulitzer Fountain a couple of years back. You can read that here. Wikipedia offers a decent history here. More views of the fountain can be seen here.

    Property values are on a positive slope in NY, the schools there are not laying off teachers, maybe the prosperity there will rub off on the California city. Great picture.

    Oh I am so jealous you got to see her in person. I was in NYC in the past, but did not know to look for her.

    That one photo of her in the snow still gets me.
