Nice quaint green space conveniently along route from Wall Street back towards city center. Lovingly up-kept flower beds and manicured lawns make this a very relaxing place.

The original Jefferson Market was leveled in 1873 to make way for the Courthouse designed by Calvert Vaux, one of Central Park’s master planners, and Frederick Clarke Withers. In 1885, a panel of architects voted it the fifth most beautiful building in America. In 1931,...More

Right in the middle of one of the busiest neighborhoods is this wonderful, beautifully landscaped garden. It isn't very large, but has been designed to delight all four senses. There are benches, perhaps not enough. Hours of operation are a bit odd. When I've passed...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.
