This wonderful fountain--one of too few elaborate fountains in New York City--is located in the secluded oval, thickly framed by trees, directly to the north of the arch. It is a riot of extravagant, grotesque figuration and mythological and allegorical allusion. Bronze figures of a man and a woman representing Wisdom and Felicity form the centerpiece, though a fantastically surly Neptune steals the show. The Bailey Fountain is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places.
