Northeast Concourse

Description:

This year-round fountain was originally known as the Northeast Concourse Casting Pool. Originally it was used for the organized sport of miniature yacht racing. In the 1940's it was popular among fisherman who could practice their art of casting. Fountain jets were added in the 1960's giving it took on a whole new identity.
