We went to the park in the evening to meet up for a walking tour. The park was nice, lots of paths through it and greenery. It was pretty busy. There was music, people hanging out, eating dinner, couples on dates. It seemed to have...More
The park itself is pretty good. Nice green space and normally full of activities of some sort. The main reason for 5 stars is because this area is one of my favorites. NYU is here and that means affordable and tasty dining, eclectic activities and...More
Washington square park is very cool to visit around the holidays. There is a huge Christmas tree up and everyone seems so cheerful. Also if you have a little bit of food you can feed the squirrels- they were really friendly! Not a major tourist...More
What a fabulous park!! So busy though -with street entertainers, people sitting in the grass relaxing, people sitting at tables playing chess.

Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
The park is free and is Surrounded by Greenwich Village, which is also interesting to stroll through. It's best to visit the park on a nice day when there are lots of things going on there. Also not far away is Highline... More
