Pedestrians strolling through the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday were treated to an interesting sight as one of the area’s most famous fountains changed colors.

The famed Lincoln Center fountain water was transformed into an unmissable bright yellow as the result of an apparent prank. Photos posted on social media show lemon-yellow water gushing from the popular fountain.

“Around 1pm today someone put a water-based yellow dye pack into the Revson Fountain at Lincoln Center,” a spokesperson said.

The fountain was turned off and closed for cleaning. It reopened less than 24 hours later.

The fountain is a famous tourist attraction that sits in front of the Metropolitan Opera and New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The fountain has appeared in major movies such as “Moonstruck” and “Ghostbusters.”

Security officers notified police, who are investigating the incident and searching for the prankster.
