Neptune

Neptune

The Grand Army Plaza was designed as a way to transition from the major streets in Brooklyn to Prospect Park. Bailey Fountain was built in the center of the oval plaza in the late 1920s. The fountain was named for Frank Bailey, a graduate of Union College in Schenectady, NY, who was actively involved in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and donated the funds for the fountain. Neptune is just one element of the fascinating fountain design.
