NEW YORK — A prankster has thrown yellow dye into the fountain at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
Photos posted on social media Saturday show lemon-yellow water gushing from the fountain, which sits in front of the Metropolitan Opera and is a popular tourist attraction that has been featured in movies including “Moonstruck” and “Ghostbusters.”
The Daily News reports the fountain was turned off after suddenly changing color Saturday afternoon.
A Lincoln Center spokeswoman says security notified the police, who are looking for the prankster. She says the fountain is being cleaned.
