"Take a break in Washington Square" Washington Square Park Tip by davesut

Washington Square Park, New York City: 37 reviews and 81 photos

  Washington Square Park Archway
by davesut

Washington Square Park is quite a large open space, bigeer than I thought from research. Others will tell you how this place is alive with performers during the summer but in a cold Easter break it used as a thoroughfare and by dog walkers, it was too cold to hang about. The arch I found quite impressive. I was interested to find out how public hangings took place here in days of yore.

From the top of the Empire State Building you can look stright down 5th Avenue to see the Arch.

If you are walking through Greenwich Village take time to stop here for a rest but only in the summer

Address: Greenwich Village
Directions: At the southern base of 5th Avenue

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
