Groups Team Up to Restore Schiff Fountain

Must Read

The Schiff Fountain, located on the western border of Seward Park.

The Friends of Seward Park and the Hester Street Fair are teaming up to restore the Schiff Fountain, on the western edge of the park.  They’ve launched a petition drive with a goal of collecting 5,000 signatures. The fountain was donated to the people of the Lower East Side in 1894 by Jacob Schiff, a financier and philanthropist.  It’s been in a state of disrepair for many years.

We’re going to have a full story on their campaign in the next week. In the meantime you can read more about the fountain on Samuel Gruber’s blog.

Here’s a link to the petition.
