The park was bustling with people relaxing in the sun and taking in the beauty of the view.
I love that in such a big busy city there are still green places for locals and tourists alike to relax and visit.
WASHINGTON Square is well worth a visit, lots going on musicians/buskers, fountain.
Some people doing Tia Chi when we visited. Nice to sit on a bench, coffee in your hand watching the world go by and listening to the playing musicians.
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.
