The "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" Atlas

Swann Memorial Fountain (Logan Circle)

As Seen In: Opening credits; "Dennis Reynolds: An Erotic Life" (Season 4)
Location: Logan Circle

The camera circles Logan Circle (also known as Logan Square) during Sunny's opening credits, offering a nighttime view of Swann Memorial Fountain. But more memorably, during the fourth season, various members of the Gang visited Logan Circle for personal reasons. Sweet Dee came here to make it rain on the fountain while praying for her pathetic life to improve. Charlie came to steal money for spies, because Charlie is a complete fucking idiot. Frank came  to piss in the fountain, and because the episode is about Dennis, he came because he thinks the fountain's water has healing powers. Take that, Lake Minnetonka.

The circle was designed by French architect Jacques Gréber, who modeled it after the Place de la Concorde in Paris. It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1981.
