Peace Be With You

Tompkins Square Temperance

Tompkins Square Park isn’t usually this quiet, but on a drizzly New Year’s day, it felt like we were the only people in the park.

The Temperance Fountain, erected by a teetotaling San Franciso dentist in 1888, features a beautiful statue of the goddess Hebe and actually has water in it (given the park’s history, this is quite an achivement).
