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.

I love to see this area as it's a NYC icon to me. Not a lot to see or do necessarily, but I am in awe of the arch and it's size.

You can enjoy this attraction while trolling in the Greenwich village. Nothing much to see, but good place for relaxing.

Impressive monument to an important politician. Other than that nothing special around. Nice to see many people - many dogs on weekends.

We enjoyed seeing this while walking through the village. This is an intricate and stunning tribute to George Washington.

This is a MUST visit for anyone who is visiting NY. The view is spectacular, for best photos I would recommend the visit at the morning hours when the sun is enlightening the Island. I was lucky with the weather and walked all the way...More

I specifically came to see this arch as I've seen it in movies and books about NYC. It is in Washington Square park within Greenwich Village and close to the trains. I enjoyed just walking around and seeing the locals who stayed nearby as well...More

Greenwich Village
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.
