Water on the Go, in Herald Square

Drinking Fountain, nyc Photo by myself in Washington Square Park, in the Village.

Public water fountains with multiple spigots are on the street, advertising 'NYC Water-on-the-Go'. The fountains are fed with New York City tap water.

The City-run program is educates people about our tap water, which is incredibly clean. Usage of plastic bottles is reduced as a result.

Well folks, my fiance and I are off once again to Japan, Monday morning. We'll be going to Tokyo, Fukuoka and Kyoto. I won't be back in New York til September (!).

I'm not used to traveling so often. I found myself nostalgic about New York before I even left. We've been having gorgeous weather here, this past week.

It's a long flight to Tokyo, and we are flying direct. We'll get there Tuesday afternoon, New York time. Photos and posts will continue here, as usual.

Oh Kitty have a wonderful time, how exciting. You'll have lots to share on your return.
I've read a lot about NYC water supply and its one of the cleanest and pure in the world! The Travel Centres in Oz and other countries should educate potential tourists about this so they won't all be buying so much bottled water!

Safe and exciting travels!

Oh, I LOVE NYC tap water! It tastes great, makes my hair so soft and shiny, and - most importantly - I do believe it's the secret to great NYC pizza. I am always sad to return to Atlanta and a flat head of hair.
