Christmas in New York 2021, Day 6: The Fifth Season — Penguins and Polar Bears in the Pulitzer Fountain
The Pulitzer Fountain, just across from the Plaza Hotel and south of Central Park on Fifth Avenue, is a beautiful fountain that has had many duties during the holiday season in New York. One year the area was the site of a Nativity scene, another year I heard carolers from a socialist choir. Last year the Fifth Avenue Association put together a beautiful display with lighted toy sculptures and ornaments that attracted a large crowd.
This year the association presents The Fifth Season, a fantasy world of penguins, polar bears, seals, an ice-skating jaguar, birds and other critters cavorting in the fountain. The 32 animal sculptures were handcrafted in Brooklyn, and there is a polar bear in place to join you for selfies.
The night I went it was crowded, but not uncomfortably so. The children seemed to enjoy it, although it is more for watching than interacting
