Albert Capsouto Park

leave a comment »

In 2009, this former parking lot opened as a park; a triangle between Canal, Varick, and Laight streets. The standout of the park is the fountain. The fountain, designed by Elyn Zimmerman, opens at an 8-foot tower and flows for 114 feet. The fountain is supposed to depict locks, like a canal, running parallel to Canal street.

Albert Capsouto was the youngest of the three founding brothers of TriBeCa bistro Capsouto Frères.

The Cascada

with one comment

Located in Barcelona’s Parc de la Ciutadella, the Cascada was first inaugurated in 1881, but without sculptures. A six year period, between 1882 and 1888, saw the fountain take its current form.

The structure was erected by Josep Fontsére.

Antoni Gaudi is said to have had some input in the structure's construction.
