Heinrich Heine Memorial

The Heinrich Heine Memorial, also known as the Lorelei Fountain was designed and fabricated in Germany for erection in Dusseldorf. It ended up on the Grand Concourse in The Bronx in NYC where it was moved several times and heavily vandalized. In 1999 the Municipal Art Society raised funds for its restoration. D/2 Biological Solution was specified for its cleaning. Joan Berkowitz was the conservator and still gives the fountain a light D/2 maintenance spraying every other year.

The crew, which works out of Frederick, Md., and travels the country to clean monuments, will work at the park for about three months. The group uses the environment friendly cleaner D/2 to clean the structures.
