Mayor Ed Lee and CEO of Apple, Tim Cook: Keep Ruth Asawa Fountain at Hyatt Union Square

The Hyatt on Union Square Fountain has stood in its place for over 40 years. The fountain was custom built for that space alone. It is a landmark created by our beloved and renowned artist Ruth Asawa in collaboration with children, friends, and families of San Francisco.

Apple plans to remove the fountain from its current location, in order to build their new flagship San Francisco store.  This is sad and unacceptable to many of us. The fountain is a part of our history and a reminder how San Francisco came to be The City that it is today.

Many of us enjoy, use and purchase Apple products on a regular basis. They employ some of the most brilliant and creative minds in the world. We respectfully ask Apple to utilize that creativity and brilliance to find a solution that will keep the fountain in its place. Let's work together to preserve our history, and look toward our future.
