While the Plaza Hotel dominates the skyline of the southern portion of Central Park, Goldthwaite chose to focus her attention on the Pulitzer Fountain in Grand Army Plaza, just between the hotel and the entrance to the park. This fountain was a gift of newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer, who left a sum of $50,000 for its construction. In 1916, the fountain was installed, complete with a graceful bronze sculpture of the Roman goddess of abundance, Pomona, designed by sculptor Karl Bitter.
