Central Park - Singapore, Bethesda Fountain, John Lennon  2007-04-25

 

And finally this past weekend was a visit to Central Park for an 'I love Singapore' festival at the Wollman Rink.

 

 

Then over to the Bethesda Fountain which recently was in the news in regards to the completion of the replacement of the 1860's era decorative tile in the 'arcade' near the fountain.

In the near the arcade are always various street performers and other assorted characters, including "Thoth", who I recall reading about in the NY Times.   (See http://www.rachelleb.com/000931.html )

 

Upon exiting the park at CPW and 72nd, is the John Lennon memorial, across the street from where he lived in the Dakota building, until his assassination in 1980.
