fountain, Lincoln Center

During the day, the plaza at Lincoln Center feels a bit cold and unwelcoming. In the evening, that changes. As the light leaves the sky, the surrounding concert halls give off a warm glow. The fountain becomes the center of attention, with shining jets of water performing a choreographed dance. People gather to watch the show and inevitably get sprayed with wind-borne mist. They sit and chatter, like birds on a telephone wire, getting in one last visit with friends and family before the darkness descends.
