by sethnem

quite a different park than central park! wash sq is more a meeting place than a park. there are always performers there (free) sometimes good, sometimes not so good. it is great to just sit and watch people. there can be many protests there against the war, against corporations, greenpeace etc... it is fun, and definitely a 'downtown' crowd (which is where i live) - this usually means younger, and a bit more eccentric. again best when the weather is nice.
