Water fountains are not sanitary
Hoboken fountains are actually bird baths!
I don’t even know who uses public water fountains any more these days. I guess if it was the only source of water for survival I’d have to, but if you ever observe the few fountains we do have in town – you’d think twice about using them.
On an almost daily basis, you’ll see some filthy pigeon or squirrel helping themselves to water – like this example over at Elysian Park. The bird was walking in and around the spout like he owned it. Will you still use the fountains after seeing this photo?
