Peace Fountain is located in the Children's Sculpture Garden.One of New York’s more unusual landmarks is found on Amsterdam Ave.

Located in the Children’s Sculpture Garden next to the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, the Peace Fountain was created by sculptor Greg Wyatt in 1985. Loved or loathed, “Peace Fountain celebrates the triumph of Good over Evil, and sets before us the world’s opposing forces—violence and harmony, light and darkness, life and death—which God reconciles in his peace.” Peace Fountain does not actually function as a fountain as there is no running water through it.
