Great park in New York City. On nice sunny days lots of activity abounds. Buskers food carts and people watching.

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.

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.

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

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.
